On the prior Tuesday: “Mildred stopped to ask Billy to school Friday.”
Mildred Peverstorf, who lived a half mile to the west, was the teacher at Willow #3, a mile to the north of our farm, where I would go to school in the fall. This was apparently a ‘try it out’ day, upcoming…
Friday, April 7:
Nice day. Made choc. cake. Fixed lunch for Billy to take to school. Pete went to LVene’s to get lunch pail. Mildred came for him at 12:00. Ate, cleaned up & Pete took me to Worker’s Conf. at Eunice’s. Quilted. Dor’t T. there. Doughnuts & cheese. Pete & Billy came for me. Walked down the lane. Folks came out for supper. Mom did dishes & I finished my ironing. To bed early. Billy really tired.
Note: Prior Sunday was Palm Sunday. Went to Sunday School. “Billy spoke a piece. Had large crowd. 56 there.”
Sunday, April 9:
Cloudy. Up early. Billy had to see if Bunny was here. Chores, cleaned up & all 4 of us went to church & Sunday School. 70 there. Mom bro’t out chicken. Ate, did dishes. I took a nap. Turned kinda chilly. Had potato soup. Played rummy. Folks left. Pete & I put slip covers on davenport.
I was interested to see that I got a ‘preview visit’ to school in the spring. There would be three in our class. Wonder if they attended on different day. Apparently only attended half a day, but included taking a ‘lunch pail’ - fascinating to see!!
Always interesting to read about Easter.
P.S. Later, on April 10: "Went to 'Lassie Come Home.' Too sad for Billy."
I never liked sad or scary movies... still don't!! ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
