Quite a few people on Facebook do what's called "Throwback Thursday".

Since so many people are posting back to school photos of their kids

I thought I would show you an antique.

This is me getting ready to go to Kindergarten, Sept. 5, 1948.

I attended kindergarten in a converted church.

This was my favorite dress.

It was mint green and I called it my twirly dress.

Dancing and spinning around made the skirt flair out and I thought it was just plain FUN.

You are adorable and look a bit like Shirley Temple. Too bad they did not have color, I would love to see the green shade of the dress.

I remember spin around dresses. You look good in yours.

I love old photos! A great idea to send in photos from the time we still wore dresses!
Thanks for visiting and for your comment.

Great photo! And I love the dress. I wish I had pictures of my first day at school, but taking photos was a different proposition back then.

I remember Lauren loved her spinning dresses and armpit dresses as being her favorite! I guess she takes after her Grandma ;-)
