Didn't get to go. Had to stay on the farm and milk the cows.

Do not remember the first day but do remember getting in trouble at least 3 times in kindergarten.

Not the first day but nearly 50 years later I still have some very vivid memories of Kindergarten. We had a Kindergarten graduation program and I received a diploma which my mom framed and hung on the wall in the dining room.

At the time we lived across the street from the Rectory and Father Van Tilburg walked across the street shortly after my "graduation" to talk to my mom about something. I still remember him bending over and shaking my hand congratulating me on my graduation.

My Kindergarten class was in an old country school building moved in near the main school sometime in the early '50s. We were in our own place and it was exciting when we were able to move in with "the big kids."
