DEAR DIARY – JULY 13 –  23, 1961

***

For those who haven’t seen my Dear Diary posts before, a little explanation. This is my actual diary I wrote in for a full year, when I was 10 years old. I wrote every day, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, but it was all recorded. Names of relatives are only first initials with relationship in parentheses. I’ve typed the entries just as I wrote them, mis-spellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using catagories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂

a note about the day after Halloween… When we all went back to school that morning, my whole 5th grade classroom was having a crazy fun time before the bell rang. We were in the room, but the teacher wasn’t there yet. All the kids (me included) had brought our candy loot from the night before, and were throwing it all over the place, and each other. We were leaping around desks, and laughing like crazy. So much fun! …but… the teacher came in and was not happy. She made everyone drag their desks out into the hallway, to sit there quietly for awhile. Even that was funny to us. Eventually she let us all back into the room. hahaha! 😉
