1958 was a big year in our family as it was the year we moved into a new house. Who knew it would be my parents’ home until 2013? I’m sure Mom & Dad loved getting settled in their new home and making friends with the neighbors, many of whom are still friends of ours today. The next few pages of the photo album, though, show that it wasn’t all about the new house that year.
My sister started 1st grade at Schallenberger Elementary.

And here we were posing in front of the new house. And in our fancy dresses and patent leather shoes, no less!
Big Sister and Me
I’ll remember that front door and entry way for the rest of my life. The best part was when you entered the front door the entry way had cool (at least for the 1950’s) rock on the floor which enabled us to use our imagination. Imagine playing hopscotch inside for hours! Use your imagination and see if you can see the hopscotch squares in the rock.
Do you see it?
With your left foot – 1, 2, 3….then 4 and 5 with both feet.
You really have to use your imagination after that.
And then a couple of random shots with Dad’s comments.
Cary on the trigger again
Me, Mom, Dad - 1958
Not sure where this might be. Anyone know?
It doesn’t look like big sister was quite so sober.
Oh no! Now my sister has started wearing ‘pearls’! What 6 year old wears ‘pearls’ to the zoo or park?
And the last one is a group shot – something we didn’t see too often as my dad was always the one taking the photos.
What a crew
