Yesterday it snowed and today school was an hour late we almost didn’t make a few hills. Bus 17 was very late. We have our plege to the flag and our moment of silens a story a math and then spelling game all in the back of the room. We were aloud to work and eat where ever we wanted it was fun. Today I also played out in the snow. I dug a tunel threw a big snowball, and wrote things in the snow.
Spring 1976: Wanda, me and baby Yvonne in the doll crib. (We begged mom to let us put her in there!)
