My Hometown

Larchwood, IA is in the Northwest corner of Iowa.  This past summer Dad and I were in the Larchwood Family Days parade in his 1918 Paige touring car.  Here's a view at the start of the parade.  Lots of memories in this scene.  The old bank, pool hall, the old Trophy Case Bar, a former grocery store, the post office, the Corner...  All these businesses have changed since I lived in the area (except the post office), but I still love the memories seeing them creates.  You CAN go home again; whether it's looking at photos, reading a story, hearing a familiar voice or walking down a street.  May you take that trip again soon.

Construction at School

This year at school, we're dealing with construction as they add additional rooms for the K-2 school to move over and join the 3-12 complex.  There are already sections to the school added on here and there with; high school, middle school and 3-5 areas.  With the addition there will be remodeling of some of the existing areas as well.
I used to have easy access to the outside, but now that is gone and replaced by the sound of construction outside my window and on the other side of the wall.  Parking and access to the school has also changed and instead of one locked door to the outside I have three, and a much longer path to walk.
Completion is scheduled for August 2011.  I have started taking photos out the old door in my hallway and hope to take weekly photos to watch the progress.  I should have started this a couple months ago but here are some beginning photos to share.
