Yesterday was my niece Ella Ione Jones's 6th birthday. This is a shout out to her!! 6 years old already.
Do you remember being 6? I'm pretty sure that is the first year I really remember vividly. Everything before that is a mix of memory flashes. The year I turned 6 I entered 1st grade at Lewis & Clark Elementary school in Wenatchee and my teacher was Mrs. Truscott. We had an influx of students from Cambodia and Vietnam and I was paired up with Lum Nam Chet to help him assimilate and learn English. The year I was 6 was also the year of my first trip to Hawaii. Good Times.
Happy Birthday Ella, and enjoy being 6!!
