The Story Continues...1st Grade!

To be completely honest, nothing overly exciting happened in first grade. {at least not in comparison to Kindergarten!}

I remember really liking my teacher. She was soft spoken and really kind to us kids.

I remember loving learning how to read and write.

First Grade is also where my friendships really started to develop and some of my bestest friends were made.

I remember two girls in particular, Sally* and Susie*.

The three of us became inseperable. We constantly wanted to play with each other and go to each others houses after school and on the weekends.

Throuout the year, our bond grew tighter and stronger. But, a sad thing happened.

Sally's* dad's job transferred him to another city 4 hours away! {to a six year old that is as far away as the moon!!}

I was devastated! She was one of my bestest friends! Susie* and I cried our little eyes out that last day of 1st grade!

At such a young age, we still knew and understood that we most likely would never see Sally* again! {and I haven't}

To hear what happens to Susie* and mine friendship and how we survived the second grade without Sally* tune in next week...!

  2. I love the thought of talking about best friends for each year of elementary- that is a great spark for the memory.

  3. Come on, you can't stop here? :-).

    It is always so hard when people you are so close to, move far away like in your situation. And there was no way of keeping touch as well, when you are only 6.

  6. Thats too bad your friend moved away! I know what you mean about the distance, when I was young I remember thinking each different state might as well have been a different country as far away as they seemed!!
    Thanks for sharing, looking forward to next week!

  7. It's sweet to see little girls bond like that. Your poor little hearts must have been crushed.

    I don't look forward to seeing my own daughter cry over the loss of a friend someday but I know it will help her learn. I can't shield her from everything.
