Mom’s scrapbooks

My brother recently discovered some of Mom’s scrapbooks in his storage room.  Neither one of us knew they existed and Mom perhaps thought they had been discarded – they’ve been boxed since at least 1984.  She made one for every year, but only a couple survived.

She saved our school records and our artistic masterpieces.  So now I have proof that I did get promoted from 7th to 8th grade.  The certificate was mimeographed and filled in by hand.  And signed by Mr. Whittinghill and Mr. Pruyne.

And I have a record from my beloved first grade teacher, Miss Giddings.

Thanks Mom for saving everything.  Wish we had all the scrapbooks she made.
