Awww....thanks, Cellie, Robyn, PG and oddio!You are right, oddio, we didn't have many worries back then. Maybe all I worried about was if I was going to be able to learn cursive writing and if our cat was ever going to accept me into the family. Ha ha!PG, I did have two little boyfriends in kindergarten. I still remember...Johnny and Ritchie. Ritchie had a shock of red hair and freckles and I liked him best. Johnny used to walk home with me because he lived over one of the stores downtown, which was a few blocks past my house. Funny the things we remember! Then I moved and there went my love life.
Ain't she purty!A wonderful age. Think of all the stuff we didn't know and didn't have to worry about! :>)
Well aren't we the happy, cute little girl ready for a day at school, and breaking the boys hearts.
I've got a similar one to this too Laura - I love the goofy grin :)))
Too adorable LJ :)
Thank you for your nice comments, Pat and Ank. Appreicate you gals!
Lovely Laura, what a great time isn't it? Love your big smile.
Cute little girl there LJ... Best time of life .... Hugs
Oh, the memories, pinknblack! Ha ha!
Similar dress, size 6X for chubby little girls and we had a dark brown and white Ford Station Wagon, but I don't remember the year. It was mandatory to wear dresses to school and I hated them. I was always hanging out on the Monkey Bars, in a dress, no less. Great photo and thanks for the memories.
Looks like several of us had the same kind of dresses back then, javasage. Maybe it is indicative of the era in which we lived. Yep, warbler, I drank out of the garden hose and ate snow all the time. And, miraculously, we are still alive.
To Cool! Laura, Too Cool! We even came home from school and played more. And drank out of garden hoses and stuff. And made it just fine.
I had a similar dress, too! My Mother hand smocked the front bodice, and I was proud of it because she was so proud of herself! Great pic! Thanks ;-)
Jack, I am glad you put those two comments in the proper order! Me first and the car second. Hahaha!Morris...yes, a big happy smile :o)))Thank you very much Lorna, Patti, Pilley, Nana, Tex and Pumpkin!!Tex...yes, a lot happier than when they strapped that pink Easter bonnet on me.
I just absolutely, positively LOVE THIS!!!!!
Great picture, LJ! And you look a lot happier than you did in that Easter pic! Thanks for sharing.
What a cutie pie! Great photo, Laura! Thanks for sharing with us.
We had the same tradition. A photo on the first day of school (we were all dressed in our finest homemade). I did the same for my children (they were not always happy about it) but now they have a yearly timeline for great memories.
Precious, Laura! Thank you!
That is a great photo Laura! You look so proud and happy.
To bad that we did not realize how good we had it, until years later. You always had a happy smile, didn't you?
beautiful young girl and beautiful car Laura!
Ardy, I wasn't born back then, but I think the times didn't change as fast as they do now. Wow, just before Pearl Harbor! What was it like when they announced that PH had been bombed? Do you remember that? Gene, I was spiffed up...but be assured that I was back out climbing trees by the end of the day. Thanks!
Great photo Laura you lookked real nice and were all ready to go
Maybe we got our dresses at the same store, Julia! I grew up in New Jersey, although I live in Illinois now. Thanks lyndee. I was a happy little girl!
A wonderful picture. You are so lucky to have it. We all dressed like that back when I started school in 1941 - about three months before Pearl Harbor. Thanks for sharing this special moment in your life.
We had a 59 Chevrolet station wagon, red and white. I had red plaid and green plaid dresses for school. How funny. I love it.
Awwwww. Laura, you look so cute. Happy Days!!
I probably thought my new dress was the bee's knees.
Aw and you looks so proud too.
