Week 37. Earliest Memory. What is your earliest memory?
My childhood memories are closely tied to what house we were living in at the time. I can't pinpoint what would be my earliest memory, but I do have memories of the first house I ever lived in. My childhood memories really begin around the time I went to Kindergarten. It was September of 1962, I was 4 years old. I remember my mom helping me cross the street and then I walked the 4 blocks to school.
Other early childhood memories include playing with neighborhood friends; putting a play on in our garage and inviting neighbors to come see it; playing in the back room of our house (it's where we use to hide our vitamins!) and my mom baking goodies in the kitchen.
I guess you could say I had a very traditional midwestern upbringing. One I am thankful for.
