My Schools and Residences

This is everywhere I lived through the end of high school. We moved a lot. Not always sure of the ins and outs, but as a kid, you sorta went where your parents took you. 🙂

Never considered it a bad thing. Of course when driving around DeKalb Co, I can usually point out somewhere I used to live nearby.

Note I attended three schools in 5th, 7th, and 10th grades.
