A few months ago, Christy gave us this sibling photo assignment:
" Using the theme My Hometown share a set of photos of places that have been around since you were a child. "
Christy shares her photos here, and Bill will do this assignment the next time he is in Kellogg.
When I think of buildings that were around when I was younger, and those places that were important to me, the buildings that came to mind were the homes of my friends, and my elementary school.
This is the building that I spent grades one through sixth grade. I learned from Mrs. Kirkpatrick, Mrs. Cooke, Mrs. Clary, Mrs. Daiker, Mrs. Joy and Mrs. Tregoning. I had music classes from Mrs. Williams. I took P.E. from Mr. Curry. I had speech therapy from Mrs. Maddox. This is no longer an elementary school. It is part of a car dealership. But to me, it will always be my grade school, and the place I built lasting bonds with people who are my lifelong friends.
So when I look at buildings around our hometown, the ones that evoke special memories are the ones where I spent time with my friends, either at school, or in their homes. And each and every one of these friends are still near and dear to my heart.
