My Kindergarten Class Picture

Kindergarten Class Morrison School

I’m thankful to my kindergarten classmate Bonnie McKinney Guinn for posting this class picture on Facebook today. I have the same picture but haven’t scanned it yet. I’m in the front row at the far right. I remember that dress I was wearing. The big collar was “Chartreuse”---a popular color in 1952 when this picture was taken. My twin brother Dennis Margheim is in the 3rd row, 3rd from right. We were in the morning class taught by Miss Aileen Williams at E. E. Morrison School, Great Bend, Kansas. We’re pictured together in the photo below.

Oh, the wonderful memories. I can still smell the Crayola crayons and the tempura paint. I remember dipping candles, learning to tie our shoes (we partnered up---I taught my brother since I already knew how to tie), and best of all, I remember singing “This Old Man” while playing the tambourine.

Harriet, at least 1/3 of the kids in that class are my friends on Facebook. Lucky, huh?

What great shoes you have in the second photo! I always wanted saddle shoes, and they mostly bought me plain black or brown. Lucky you!
