Hello everyone! I thought I would share some pictures from my childhood with you today. You can click on any of the pictures to make them bigger.
This first picture is of me at 2 1/2 years old, with a head full of blonde hair.
It didn't stick around though, by first grade (or Grade 1 as they say in Canada!), I had long brown hair.
Actually, this dress is what started me looking through my old pictures in the first place. I was visiting my friend Revee this past Friday and her daughter was wearing a dress with possibly the same print as my Grade 1 dress. Revee, you'll have to tell me if you think it's the same!
I can still remember most of my classmates from Grade 1, even the boy who sucked his thumb all day long. It's funny the things you remember!
My teacher was Miss Becker and I thought she was the prettiest and nicest teacher ever. She once traded sandwiches with me because I didn't like my cheese and mayonnaise one. She lived in the only tall-rise apartment building in our small town and I still call it "Miss Becker's Apartment building" to this day!
I had the same classmates in second grade but my teacher wasn't as nice as Miss Becker. :0)
I wasn't the best student and my parents pulled me out halfway through second grade to homeschool me. Virtually unheard of in the 1980's!
By Grade 2 I had short hair, which I think suited me better!
Along with the pictures I found some crafts from long ago. I guess my love for birds started at a young age...here is one that I made when I was 5. It says "Kelli and Daddy" on the back so I think I had some help!
Evidently, I have always like anything to do with the 4 seasons too! These pictures have really faded over the years, sorry they are so hard to see!
Two little Valentine's from Grade 1.
Lastly, a Sunday School Graduation card from December 1981. I was 5 years old.
My mom was my teacher and it is signed by her and the pastor.
The inside says...
"If you listen to advise and are willing to learn, one day you will be wise, have reverence for the Lord, content and safe from harm. ~Proverbs 19:20, 2
Thank you for coming down memory lane with me!!
