Kathleen - you said your mom wanted to know where this picture was, so here it is! Mrs. Alvezi's 3rd grade class 1972-1973. I'm in the white shirt in the front row with the braids, and your mom is standing behind me in the purple pant suit w/ the white ruffle blouse. That's how long your mom and I have been friends!! Incidentally, I'm still wearing braids, even as I write this post. Here's some trivia about some of the kids in my class:
The two girls sitting next to me on the right, are both named Terry (one's cut off on the edge) & both got pregnant and left school in the 10th grade, and the blonde girl sitting next to me on the left was pregnant when we graduated.
I had a wicked crush on the boy in the back row wearing the green shirt. His name was Jimmy Wood, he took my bus and lived down the road from me.
Nearly all the kids in this picture started kindergarten with me and graduated with me too.
