Artist's Description

This is my sister, Beth (in blue), and me. This was my first day of school as a ‘big girl’. Which meant I got to go on the bus with my sis, instead of the private kindergarten. My Great Aunt and my Grandmother made our matching dresses. They always made our clothes for us, and we always matched, until we were teenagers, then they gave up. I always had red, and she always had blue. It was her fav color. We made sure her casket and flowers were blue, blue, blue at her funeral; and instead of red, I wore blue. I miss her deeply, especially at this time of year. The anniversary of her passing is approaching soon. We had such fun on our trips to school, just us two. Our last name was Roberts, and as you can see she is much taller than me, so I was nicknamed little Roberts, which shortened to Little Robbie, and eventually Robbie became my nickname. It lasted throughout my grade school years but didn’t follow me to Jr. high. (I was okay with that) Thanks for taking the time to take a peak. :)
