I don’t remember much about kindergarten, do you?

I remember recess, the little chairs, and my mom walking to the school to pick me up and walk home with me at the end of the day. I remember my teacher’s name, Mrs. Jensen (or was it Jansen?) I remember coloring and circle time.

I also remember my mom bought me these little red rainboots that had Snoopy on them and I remember that I hated them. She had to force me to wear them. It doesn’t rain much here, so I’m not sure why I had them or had to wear them in the first place.

That is all I remember about kindergarten.

But reminiscing about the good old days is fun! So is digging out old kindergarten pictures to see how much you have changed. A bunch of blogging friends and I thought it would be fun to see how many of you could match our kindergarten pictures to us…so allow me to present to you:


It’s very simple to join in! Simply match the picture (with the assigned alphabet) to the blogger whose blog is listed below.

If you get them all right, you could win a $300 Amazon gift card!* You can also get to know some of the bloggers listed here, if you don’t already. Plus, you get to have a laugh at our expenses, just like we did! Now get ready, set, play!
