Whoa.

I was just thinking about something from when I was a kid, and just realized how odd it seems now.

I was put in the Gifted program in 4th grade, and it was set up where everyone in the group in our grade left our regular classes for about half the day once a week and went to that classroom instead. The classroom we went to was in the nearby elementary school- If I remember right (and seriously, who even knows since it's been like 20 years!) it was only a 5-10 minute walk, and the 5 or 6 of us all walked together, but still! Can you imagine a school now letting a bunch of 10 year olds walk that by themselves?

Its amazing what a few years can do. I often wish my kids could have grown up when people were a little more trusting!
