Throwback Thursday, 1950!

Here I am at 6 years old.  It's my kindergarten picture.  I started school at age 6 because when I was 5 I could not speak English...strictly French!

Aw! The first friend I ever had that didn't speak English was a little french girl in my grade one class, so pretty much the age you are there. I remember being so impressed by how quickly she learned English, and how well we managed to communicate even when she didn't. Also like you she had a wonderfully infectious, silly sense of humor. That definitely helped!

You do have this French look about you! I bet it took you all of a couple of months before you were fluent in English. You didn't "loose" your French, did you?

Well, you are just too darn cute and I like you even more now you spoke French!

p.s. My 17 year old son wants to meet you and has dubbed you the best wife ever for going with your hubby to the topless donut shop.

what an adorable pic...that had to be quite the challenge to have to lean another language so young...though probably better than trying to do it now.

Do you still speak French? And how did that happen exactly? Parents living the good life in Paris, while you played with all your Parisian friends...

You are "une belle fille" Eva! So, if you only spoke French, where'd you come from. Something tells me there's an exciting history behind your cutting wit!

Alyssa said...

Aww...you really do have the same smile! Now in kindergarten you'd probably be put in classes for "English as a second language" That must have been hard for you.

Steel, now zat I know you're French...tres magnifique!

Good Morning Eva Sweetie...
Oh I had no idea, French, I have always wanted to learn the language. Do you still speak it fluently?

Your face is still the same sweetie. Just precious. I to wore a lot of those ribbons in my hair. Looks so darn cute.

I love the collar on your dress. How beautiful it is. The stitching is just gorgeous.

Have a gorgeous day sweetie. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

Well, you were damn cute, even if you only spoke French. Then again, French is tres sexy, so maybe it made you even cuter!

French is the most beautiful language. I tried learning it in high school, but it never stuck. Hope you still get to use yours. You were a darling child.

Rebecca said...

Awww, came by to see how your biggest looser challenge is going and I'm greeted by such a darling picture. I think I would fail miserably if French was the only option. I don't even use french dressing ~lol

Jenny said...

Awwe! Cute pic - what a pretty ribbon!

I started kindergarten at age 4 and also couldn't speak English....Slovak for me.

Steven: My Mom grew up in Quebec Province, Canada and moved to Maine at age 15. When she and my Dad married and had children, she insisted that her kids speak only French at home. She became less strict about it by the time I was 7 or 8 (I'm the youngest of 7) and as result, my French is not as fluent today as my older siblings.

gayle said...

So cute!! Can you still speak French?

Unknown Mami said...

It really is the same smile.

Tam said...

very cute - you look like one of the Walton kids!! Wait, I didn't mean you look like you were born at the turn of the century, I mean you're as cute as one of them!

Eva Gallant said...

Tam: Too late to take it back! I'm old! lol

Mami: Some things just don't change, I guess!
