L – Leaves

This is my ninth year of blogging the A to Z Challenge. Everyday I will share something about my family’s life during 1950. This was a year that the USA federal census was taken and the first one that I appear in. At the end of each post I will share a book from my childhood collection.

Now and Then

Golden leaves fell in the bushes 
overnight brightening my yard. 
Behind my eyes, 
I walk beside a river 
with my mother.  Trees all golden. 
A dog splashes in the water, 
 shakes  himself . 
My four year old self 
watches.

  1. The leaves Pearl is holding are huge! Nice to see your mother smiling. You have great animation looking, talking and leaning/walking. So much to see in this picture.

  2. Kristin, Just want to tell you I’m enjoying your A to Z series here. Great photos in each post! Especially love the children’s books included, you have a fun collection of them!

    1. I’m glad you are enjoying them. I was excited today to find some of the books being read aloud on youtube and I’ve added them where I can.
