|The Basement House Dad built in 1947, |
2201 Jefferson St, Great Bend, KS
|The two bedroom house Dad had built on top|
of the basement in 1952.
|The house was on a corner lot and had a|
two car garage and Shop near the alley.
|This is the south entrance that was the same|
entrance to the basement in the first picture above.
We weren't home all the time. I don't mean to imply that. Mom gave us many opportunities to get involved in activities. I'll write more about those later.
|Here we are playing in fresh snow in our new yard, age 4.|
|Dad had plenty of help clearing the porch|
and walks of snow!
|I remember that Dennis's coat was tan and my coat was green. |
It's funny how we remember those details.
|This is our Kindergarten picture, Fall 1952, age 4.|
|Our Kindergarten Class 1952-3, E. E. Morrison School|
Miss Aileen Williams was our teacher for the Morning Class.
I'm at the right end of the front row.
Dennis is 3rd from right in the third row.
I'll share some of my memories from the Primary grades in my next post.
