The world of movies and the culture of America have been different ever since Star Wars. I remember that I was 13 years old and finishing up the 7th grade, thinking about summer baseball and how I had been invited to play for an elite team of graduating seniors and seniors to be. I was looking forward to summer camp, and girls were definitely on my mind, the possibility of seeing Rachel, or Beth in a bikini.

I remember Mr. Russell, who would become Coach Russell, and later my friend Mike who now works for me and home-schools my kids. Mike would pick me up two nights a week to go play basketball with the adults and high school kids at the local gym.

I remember one night our church youth group decided to go to the movies. That was when I saw Star Wars. Yeah, it was pretty cool! I had hair that nearly went down to my shoulders back then. Now, well let's just say that things have changed. But that boy inside of me is still there. And memories like this bring him back and I feel young again!
