The Kids Travel to Nebraska

How many kids have been able to take the greatest road trip ever? Mine was the vacation Jim and I took to the west coast in 1968. This one sounds like just as much fun. Four kids, a relatively new car, and the chance to see new territory.

In the summer after papa passed away Mama let us four kids take the car on a trip to Nebraska. We got acquainted with uncles + cousins who all lived around Sioux City, Nebr. Actually, they were around the little town of Waterbury. Uncle Hugo’s family were the ones I always remembered most. Especially Clarence as we corresponded for quite a while afterward.

I remember having a dress that I made from white flour sacks and trimmed with red bias tape. That was the first really wearable dress I made.

That was the only time I ever saw my grandmother Luehr. She + Aunt Pauline lived in Waterbury + it seemed like they were both pretty old. At nine everybody over twenty looks old I guess.

Grandma Hinken had come to ND to visit us one time when I was quite small but had started school. I think she was on the farm at Uncle Cap’s when we were there.
