This was my first day of school in 1958. I was in second grade.
A wonderful neighbor lady by the name of Minnie Zauche was my second grade teacher. I adored her. I loved reading..learning to read opened a whole new world to me. I was a good reader. Mrs. Zauche said I talked too much in the lunch room but I still had a fairly good year in the second grade. Sometime during the year I had my tonsils removed and got to have soup in the kitchen with Arvilla until my throat was all better. Arvilla was the school cook, I loved being sick enough to get special care in the kitchen.
This is the step that faced east in the old farm house. Through the door was a porch that was cold and drafty. Another door in the porch led into the kitchen. I think this was the year that the Christmas tree was out in the porch.
I think my coat was Robin’s Egg Blue, and my Mother sewed it for me. The house was white..weren’t all farm houses white back then? :)
