mom was a girl scout

Alan's friend recently sent these to him. His mother grew up with ours. These are circa 1943-47-ish. Mom's second from the left in the Sunday School one and second from the right in the girl scout one. I love knowing she was a girl scout and wore a skirt with hiking shoes. Although, as you can see, she's characteristically not too happy about that. She's standing in that one between her two best friends. One of which was my third grade teacher and the other who preceded her in death was my piano teacher. After seeing this photo I think it was the first time I realized that they are together now. Also love the kid in the fedora in front.

Love the old photos! Fun to see parents in a different context.
