SG Club_5/13_First Day of School 1958
I really enjoyed working with this month's collection from Elisha! I am planning to use it again right away. Thank you, Elisha!
Journaling: John is wearing a rust colored, striped jacket for his first day of 1st grade in September 1958. I am starting 2nd grade in a red plaid dress, pigtails and bows, and have my lunchbox and thermos. Aunt Jackie is headed to the 7th grade and is wearing the popular headband of that year. We wore our regular clothes for the first week and then switched to the hot, serged wool uniforms in week two. The family car is in the background. Mom always took our first day of school picture with her Kodak Brownie camera while we tried to smile as we squinted into the early morning sun.
