It is a 'Time Travel Puzzle', so stay with me as I put the pieces together as I discovered them.
Fast forward from 1954, 1st grade West Texas to 1964-65, 12th grade West Texas and my graduating class. At least 12 of the 1st grade classmates in Mrs. Watson's class were in my graduating class, and while I had moved back and away three or four times, they stayed together. From one move to the next, they didn't remember me nor I them.
Over the years of Class Reunions and living in our hometown, I got to know my classmates mostly through my marriage to one of the First Grade Twelve.

Here's what I discovered when I put our 1st and 12th Grade memorabilia together.
I wish, I wish, I could remember the 4th and 5th Six Weeks of the First Grade!
All I can say is, 'It is First Grade Fate'...Oh, and I believe in Kismet!
