30 Days to 30 – Age 5

Memory #6 – age 5 yrs

The beginning of the school years. Kindergarden is where I first met two girls who became two of my oldest and dearest friends — Lissy and Tracy. Lissy and I were in the same class all through elementary school and her family lived in the house my grandparents used to live in. I remember meeting Tracy when one of us dropped our crayon box in the hallway and the other helped to pick it up. Friends for life from there on. 

My Kindergarden teacher was Mrs. Mertz and I remember hiding in one of the little cubbies where our coats were stored and crying because I needed to blow my nose and didn’t know where the kleenex was. 

And the picture below….can we say embarrassing? At least I’m embarrassing myself and my sister by showing it (I’m on the left)! This picture was so typical of my growing up. My sister and I usually wore the same dress, just different colors, for most special occasions — in this case, Christmas. Not sure if it’s the dress or the hairstyle but it looks like we stepped right off the compound.

The dolls were Homemade Strawberry Shortcake dolls from my Grandma B. And my necklace? Totally sporting the Care Bear necklace. I believe it’s Sunshine Bear!
