One of the things I remember most about grade school is the walk to and from my school every day. (Our school was about 5 blocks away.) We always walked with the same group of kids, there were a lot of them on my block, and many of us were in different grades. We met on the corner at 7:35 and headed to Christ King all by ourselves; no adults. Every year on the first day of school we would even all line up and take a picture, using the same yellow piece of cardboard on which we changed the date every year. That’s me holding the sign. This was my first day of first grade and it was fun to be joining this group of bigger kids.
