First Day of School

As school starts again, I thought I'd share some photos I have scanned from the Johnson kid's first days of school.
Left: Joe's first day of school, Sept. 1958. They didn't offer kindergarten, kids just started with 1st grade.

Right: All four kids are heading to school in Sept. 1963. I bet this day was emotional for Mom.

I know there are more photos out there yet to scan, someday I promise to scan more photos.

Left: Joe, Deb and Steve, September 1961

Looking back at our school days is so much fun. New clothes, school supplies, anticipation, excitement... carefree days. I saw that excitement on most of the kids faces today.


Right: Sept. 1962




Left: Steve, Deb and Diane. 1968. Steve was entering 8th grade, Debbie a Freshman in high school and Diane was headed to 5th grade. The dresses were made by Mom.

We must have been on the same wavelength today. I am having so much trouble making my pictures do what I want them to after I keep messing with my background. Anyway, I put a link to your blog on mine!!!!

Believe it or not, but Ralph has taken MY picture every first day of school since I started teaching...now combine that with all the picture Mom took when I was a kid...that's a TON of first day of school pictures! Now I have first day pictures with the boys and I together. Some day it will be back to just me in those pictures. Happy back to school!
