I am finding that high-schoolers are looking younger and younger with every passing year. On Labor Day we were at Highbanks Metro Park and shared a pavilion with about 15 boys who were obviously cross-country training. I was sitting under the pavilion when they came back from their run and I got to eavesdrop on their conversations. Mostly about this group of girls from their school they saw in the parking lot, one of them should ask "Laura" out, blah blah blah. I thought "Really, these must be freshmen. They look so young!" Then they got into their cars and drove away. Eek! They must have been at least juniors! It made me feel better when my sister-in-law said that she had thought they were middle-schoolers.
