I have been nominated for a 5 day challenge by a blogging friend, Judith from I choose how I will spend the rest of my life. Check out Judith´s blog to learn about her interesting life down under where she is growing younger each day. Thank´s Judith for the nomination
The Five Day Challenge is: Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.
Here is my first photo.
My best year in school was grade three. That was the year I had Miss Roll as my teacher. She was wonderful and made a huge difference in my life. She made learning fun. I wrote about her before here: https://darlenefoster.wordpress.com/2011/09/27/a-special-teacher/
At the end of the year she took a picture of the class. Behind us is the mural we painted as a group on a huge piece of brown paper. One lucky classmate got to hold the class pet, a budgie named Chico, in his cage . (Chico is Spanish for boy; we learned about Mexico that year.) As young women, we were taught to stand tall with ankles together and hands clasped in front of us for pictures. I took picture taking seriously and did what I was told.
If you are wondering which one I am, take note of the pedal pushers and matching sweater. I still dress like that. Some things never change!
I would like to nominate Marian from Plain and Fancy You will love her blog. Among other things, she shares awesome pictures and stories of growing up in a Mennonite family from Pennsylvania.
Have fun with this Marian!
