I was just going through some pictures on my computer, and I came across this one. The original is a Polaroid proudly displayed in one of my albums.
This has always been one of my favorites. I remember this day. This was taken in Brookeland, TX, 1987. It was my sister's first day of school. As you can see in the picture, Carol was mighty proud that she was going to school. I, on the other hand, was extremely upset! Apparently, I wanted to go to school, too, and they had the nerve to tell me I could't go! Why, I even had my backpack all ready to go and my little purse slug across my chest. Although, they probably would've kicked me right out of our wonderful little school since a nightgown was probably not considered appropriate attire.
On another note: I LOVED Brookeland High School. A total of about 230 students, pre-k through 12th grade. It was a GREAT school!
