That's me in the front. Close to tears as I had realised that there wouldn't be enough chairs and figured I wouldn't be in the picture. I had been put to the back of the line before we were placed. As an adult I can see that my dress is dark so I was probably put there for balance. Didn't appreciate that at the time. This photo is an amalgam of two classes caused by the staggered start.
