I started school in Ray North Dakota. It was my first day of first grade. Away from home..strange town, strange school..my Dad was part of a road construction crew. We were in North Dakota just for the summer..but apparently we stayed into the school year.
That is me and my baby brother. It was not his first day of school..I am not quite sure why he was in the picture..probably just because he was cute. We are standing just outside the door of that wicked trailer house. It had an improper ground and if you touched the sides of the door as you went in you got a shock. I hated getting that shock.
Here we are arriving at school in a 1955 Chevy. I think it was green.
Doris Kaatz, Carey, Deann, Connie and Mike 1957
I am not sure of the little boy in front..he must belong to Doris..but I cannot remember his name. This was another family who was out on “the road” for the summer. All the kids played together…jacks and marbles being my favorite. ( I wonder what happened to these kids? )
It must have been a cool morning since we all have jackets on. I remember nothing of the school day..other than I was scared because I knew no one. I remember these photos being taken and some others from that time..but school..nope no memories of a teacher or anything.
What do you remember if anything about your first day of first grade?
