Friday Flashback #50

I can't believe this is my 50th Friday Flashback! That's a lot of flashback memories. 

Since it's my 50th one I thought I would share a really good story with you. 

When I was in 3rd grade we lived in a neighborhood close to the elementary school I went to, and my mom would make we WALK to school by MYSELF! 

I don't think it's that far, maybe a mile, but as a 8 year old it seemed like the longest walk in the world!

As you can imagine, I would get really bored on these walks home, so I got creative. 

I would take the mail from one mail-box and then distribute it to other mail-boxes along my walk. Then once I ran out of mail, I would grab some more from another box and continue that until I got home. 

And I thought it was the coolest way to spend my time. I had no idea I was an 8 year old committing a felony! I probably ruined a few people's lives, and maybe even got a mailman fired! I did this for a whole year and no one knew about it until I told Matt and my mom a few months ago. 


So the moral of this story is- don't let your kids walk home alone! 

Also, to any law enforcement that my be reading this... I was only 8! Please don't arrest. 

Happy 50th Flashback Y'all! What'd ya think?
