Continuing the walk down memory lane from last Tuesday:
We had moved to a mostly finished house on a barely developed part of the mountain above Orem. Imagine a view of the valley below, and nothing but dirt as far as the eye can see. I remember that when we moved there the road hadn't developed any farther than the house where we were at.
I remember playing with my friends in the dirt behind the house, playing "Dirt Clod Wars" (terrible idea btw) and cutting out cardboard wings to run down the dirt hill and try to take flight. In my minds eye I can still see taking my toys to the dirts edge where the community construction ended and playing that they were climbing unimaginably high cliffs.
It makes me wonder how dirty I must have been every single day during those first few years.SHARE
