Sunday, September 27, 1925

Sunday, September 27, 1925

A rainy morning for the boys to go to Sunday school. Gilbert went too and saw Dale graduate and get his Bible. He and Dick both got their gold star pins for attendance and are proud of them. Mama and Winifred went to Brownsburg and Papa came out for dinner. Albert has a bad cold in his head. It cleared off and was nice in the afternoon and we had a peaceful Sunday evening.

(I think this was a rather typical Sunday for them, other than the special awards that Dale and Dick got in Sunday School. I assume they didn’t get those every week. But otherwise, I think they generally went to Sunday School, church and had a nice Sunday dinner. Sometimes Grandma’s Papa and Mama would be there or everyone would go to their house. They attended Central Christian Church.

Poor Albert, he just can’t get sick again, not after what he went through in the spring.

Oh, and it wouldn't be typical for Grandma to stay home like she has been, waiting for the baby to be born.)

  1. The gold star was most likely for one year of perfect attendance. How old are the boys now? Maybe they had completed class for the bibles.

  2. I believe Dale was 9 or just 10,as his birthday is in Sept. That would make Dick about 8.
    going to Sunday school on a less than perfect day was not easy. Not having a car meant walking 2 blocks to get the street car, then walking 2 -3 blocks in the bad weather to get to the church. Once in a while church member would drive by while we waited for the street car and would pick us up. At least we got our exercise. Albert was plagued by less than perfect health all his life but I never heard him complain. A normal sunday meant going to sunday school & church, eating a big sunday dinner & hopefully doing nothing in the afternoon. Sunday supper would be something light, and the boys going to sunday evening Christian Endeavor, a youth group.

    I remember growing up we always went to Grandma's house after church and played in her big yard (well, it seemed big to me when I was 5 or so!). We always grilled out steaks and ate from those special glasses out of her china cabinet (which when I was older I found out where jelly jars!). I especially remember fighting over the one with the stars on it!
