Summer is here!

Yay! My Best Friend, Summer, is finally here! I was so excited when she came! Guess what Ms. B did to celebrate? No, nope, you'll never guess... She let us watch Heidi, in color! It was like watching it for the first time all over again! Having color makes a big difference! In case you didn't know, Shirley Temple is the star of Heidi! In fact, the children had to pledge to follow and listen to Shirley during the movie. (It was a fun game made up because Shirley liked to boss the other kids around because they weren't doing it right.) Of course, the Annie & Andrew show cast would have done it perfectly.

Alright, now for the fun fact: Although I may seem happy and cheery, most of the 1930's were hard. We were in the depression, and no one had very much money. Some girls wore something called feedsack, which was clothing made out of sacks of feed! I even have some things made out of that. Soon, feed companies picked up on this and started printing out pretty patterned sacks. It was a race to see who could make the best and prettiest patterns! Bye for now, everyone!
