That was my nickname back in first grade, when this picture was taken. I am wearing my VERY favorite dress, it was pumpkin colored with a white collar and I would have worn that dress every day if I could have (I just might have now that I think about it). Note the classic Pixie bangs.
I think I look very sweet and shy in this picture. Still shy, maybe not as sweet as my 6 year old self. I loved my first grade teacher Mrs. Verner, and I was so excited to be learning to read! "The Big White House" was our first grade reading book, still remember it vividly.
I'm collecting family pictures in a photo album on Flickr as I come across them. You can view them here
