Photo Hunters - Childhood



The theme for this week's Photo Hunters search was "childhood." So many possibilities. I can't wait to see all the different interpretations everyone chooses.

Here's my selection - a picture from my own childhood.

The Hunt - Childhood




Here I am in 3rd grade. I'm the one wearing the red shirt in the second row from the top. I loved my teacher, Mrs. McCrary. She was terrific. I blogged about her last summer in this post. 30 years later, I can still name just about everyone in this picture.

Stop by TNChick for a look at her "childhood."

Good for you. Me, I can't name anymore my classmates even those just back in college. Poor me.

Love the class photo! Those were always fun days at school weren't they? Everyone dressed up!

Happy Saturday!

Wow, I can only tell you that my third cousin was in my third grade class and my teacher was Mrs. Scott. I would have no idea as to who the others were. Then I am not good with names and it was over 40 years ago.

What I love the most about older pictures is seeing the dress styles from back then! lol I don't have any class pictures for myself, I guess my parents couldn't afford them...sigh. Thank you for sharing this picture with us:-)

I'm so glad those 70s fashions are out of style, LOL.

Cute pic. :-)

That is great to be able to still name everyone! I don't know if my mom still has pictures like that, but I don't think I could name former classmates from my childhood.

Heather said...

Yup. HAve some of those around here. :) I still remember everyone in class not to mention their personalities. Good to go to a small school where we stayed together through all grades.

jmb said...

Wow yours is in colour, mine black and white and it's 65 years ago.
I can only remember about 4 or 5 names.
Thanks for visiting

I have all my grade school class photos still, but I can't name a single person. You are good!!! What a great photo of your 3rd grade class.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend.

pat said...

Wow - you have a good memory. I am sure I would not be able to name everyone in a class photo of mine at that age!

Happy Weekend!

Love the style back then - at least to re-live it by the photo, I'm not that sure I woul have wanted to have clothes like that today :-)
