The Good Ol' Days

My good friend Rebekah sent me some OLD pictures from the beginning of time. She and I have been friends for 27 years! This is our 1st Grade class picture. Let's see who can guess which one is me... The best part of growing up in such a small town, is I can still name every single person from this picture. I also think of Mrs. Miller (in the black jacket) everytime I smell coffee or hear the sound of celery being eaten. I'm not sure she actually consumed anything but those two foods... Anyway, as I said, let me know which of these promising young faces is mine!

I'm not sure I've ever seen a picture of you when you were younger! But I'd guess back row, far right, blond curly hair. And, happy birthday!!

So fun! I am in that picture too. I remember Mrs. Miller eating raw green peppers and almonds. I hated green peppers for the longest time! I believe I have known you and Rebekah for the same 27 years. It is fun to look back at the good old days. Thanks for posting this picture.

By the way, I am on the top row, fourth from the right.

Although I hated growing up in a small town, I LOVED growing up in a small town! Knowing everyone from first grade until graduation, how many people can say that?

My first guess was the blond on the left end of the back row (of course, I had to blow it up where I could actually see the faces) then as I scroled across I decided you are the one on the right end of the back row. I see both expressions in your daughters faces.
