Memories of Childhood-52 Weeks of Personal History and Genealogy

Week 37Earliest 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.

  1. My memories are tied to where I lived at the time too. I was planning to write about my earliest memories, thanks for reminding me!
