The magic of Facebook strikes again.
5 of my elementary school photos have been posted by former classmates. I love it! I haven't seen these pictures in years.
I'm in the middle row. Second one on the left.
Oh man, there's a lot to love in this picture. The track suit in the upper right hand corner. The Hulk shirt. The twins in their matching dresses. My best friend at the time is the blonde kid with the bowl cut next to them. It is amazing to me how many names I still remember.
Plus, I loved Mrs. Sircus! She was awesome. She gave us candy on our birthday. She drove me to T-ball games because her son was on my team. In fact, once I was sick and crapped my pants right after school. She took me to her house to change me into her son's clothes and then drove us to the game.
During the game, I hit a home run. Well, I hit the ball to the pitcher and kept running. On the way back I threw up in her back seat.
That's me in the middle row rocking the brown sweater. That's little Dickiebird Judy with his hands so neatly clasped in the first row.
I don't remember much about this grade other than doing a lot of dittos.
I got into a fight with the kid in the front row, 4th one in on the left side. He won.
I had a crush on the girl in the front row with the red shirt and brown dress. People thought she was weird though because she liked homework.
All the moms had a crush on the teacher.
Our teacher drove a Porsche. Awfully fishy. The kid in the upper left corner is now a movie star.
And one more for good measure - Balgavy!
