As I mentioned before, Bobie Story let me scan some of our common grade school pictures. All mine were lost due to a flood of our basement while I was away in the England Manchester Mission. I am happy to have copies again. (I am still missing Ms. Suhr for 3rd grade and Mr. Mendenhall for 6th grade. If you have a copy, please let me scan!)
This is our 1st grade class picture from Paul Elementary, Paul, Idaho. This was the 1985 – 1986 school year.
Normally I organized photos with married names and dates. Since all are still alive, I will forgo any of the dates. I have added the married last name for the ones I know. If you have corrections, please let me know.
I have a couple of memories about this photo I want to share.
Miss Winward graduated high school with my Mom. She would tell me that all the time. Later I knew she married to Ms. Goodsell and apparently moved away to Mountain Home or somewhere that direction.
I remember cheating off Jamey Price, who sat next to me. I struggled with math and I seem to remember she let me. Well, I got busted at some point. My Mom sat me down for hours and hours and taught me how to count with cigarettes. She got some flashcards and we slaved to make sure I knew how to do basic math. By the time 3rd grade rolled around, I was a whiz at math and Ben Frank was my competition for speed on the multiplication tables. I remember having a bit of a crush on Jamey too.
Another kid, whose last name was Bailey is not in this picture. I remember he would eat crayons and play with the Elmers glue on the knees of his pants. Jake?
This is the only year I remember having naps. Finding a little place to lay down, relax, and catch a few z’s.
