This is me, in 1992. I was 7.5 years old, finishing second grade. I remember always loving school. All the books I could read, playing with my friends at recess. In 2nd grade the big fad was string games (can anyone still do Jacob’s Ladder? I forgot!). My friends and I were fascinated by Kristi Yamaguchi who just won the gold medal in the winter Olympics that year.
I’m happy to partner with YesVideo for this trip down memory lane. YesVideo preserves priceless memories. They transfer reels, film, VHS, slides, – almost anything you have – to DVD and/or digital preservation. I’ve shared before how much I love what they do and explained how you can preserve your memories too. (Seriously, everyone that has memories needs to back them up so they can be enjoyed for many years to come).
So back to my memories. Second grade was incredibly fun for me. With an August birthday, I received school supplies as a gift. An entire bag of all the supplies I would need! I was ecstatic – I still remember this as my favorite gift. (Yup, I was a born a dweeb, apparently).
One of my favorite things to do before a new school year, was to pick out my first day of school outfit. I couldn’t wait to see my friends again and wanted to look cute – just like they would! All the girls would circle around, hugging and waving and complimenting each other’s skirts and high top sneakers.
And my kids are just like me. They love their new school supplies, and my daughters love picking out their first day of school clothes. Are yours like that?
