Old School Me

Happy Friday!
Today I am playing along with Pip from Meet Me at Mike's, who has started a Friday meme photo sharing game. Just share an old school pic of yourself for all to see! Yes, the thought is enough to make one cringe and yell "No way!" Yet, here I am jumping in.

This is the 3rd grade me. Already a little 'Lola' in the works with my 1940's vintage bow holding barrette. The dress was amazing too as I recall, I loved it; long sleeved maxi length and fancy!

I still think of Miss Kerr as my favorite teacher ever! She was so encouraging and lovely. You can't see it here, but in the class pic there is a guitar in the corner and Miss Kerr would play it. She really fostered my love of reading and writing, I can still remember writing my first "epic poem" in her class. I also remember having a fairly massive crush on the little boy in the front with the embroidered western shirt.

Have a wonderful weekend lovelies!


P.S. Thankfully I grew into my teeth :)

It's amazing how similar we all looked in the 70s! Think I would have had a crush on him too!

Love this idea! I had one of those awe inspiring teachers too - my 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Sullivan. Just goes to show how much of an impact a teacher can make.

Fab pictures. I'm not sure I have any of me at school, what a shame. There is always an inspiring teacher with a guitar some where in our pasts isn't there? Mine was Miss Hollow my very first teacher. I was then and suspect am still now a little bit in love with her!

Wow - it looks like we could have been in the same school! I was in the States in 1973 - 1976, and then again in 1979. Your photos are lovely and REALLY take me back!
