    • That’s right, Michelle. We played all kinds of things from our imagination. We also didn’t have our time scheduled so full with must do activities like kids today seem to have.

  1. Love the “real” look back. Perfect representation of any little girls daily fun and struggles. Authors try to capture the same but they embellish so much the authenticity is lost. Thanks so much for sharing 💕.

    • Hey, Kelly! Don’t know how others childhoods went, but seems back then we had plenty of time for friends and running around playing. In fiction writing, I think they want it to sound especially good or bad, so seem to forget how it was in real life. A lot of it was just mundane day to day things, you know, go to school, play, and the occasional trip to the store or a vacation. 🙂 Love hearing your thoughts! xo
