Back to school today for all the kiddies . The school bus passed us here at 8am full of kids and on it’s way to collect more ! I always enjoyed school as a kid the only thing I didn’t like was leaving all my animal friends on farm behind but loved it when I got home I would run straight to them all and tell them of my day , the chickens were the best lol .
This is my mum and I waiting for the school bus when I was little . I cant remember what was in that brown paper bag We didn’t have back packs in those days lol that bag looks bigger then me lol knowing my mum it was everything I needed lol ! This is on the farm back in the late 60’s early 70’s .
Mum stayed home and looked after the farm as my dad worked out side the farm as well . I loved coming home to fresh baked goodies and the smell of it in the kitchen ! Mum would have veggies from the garden on the counter ready to be canned or frozen . My fave was a fresh home baked chocolate chip cookie after school !
This is me getting on the bus on the first day of school .
I still remember the bus drivers name Mr Dodds who was my bus driver for 8 years , he was a nice man also a cattle farmer !
I don't remember this as much but this is my sister , my brother and I all ready for school and waiting for the bus !
Every year school starts back up my memories of it all come flooding back as do the memories of the farm !
Do you remember your first day of school and was it fun or did you dread it all ?
Until next time my friends !
