Mrs. Elder's Apple Rolls

From Holly

My kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Elder, loved children and teaching.  Everyday in her class was an adventure but I think the highlight for all of us were trips to her farm.  She and her husband had a large wheat farm and lots of farm animals.  Each fall she took her class to the farm and her students would visit all the animals, churn butter and Mrs. Elder's Kindergarten Buildinghave a wonderful time.  Now 50 years later, my other kindergarten schoolmates still talk about the trip to the farm.  She taught for many years in a small one room building adjacent to the larger school building.  My husband's favorite memory of her is seeing her drive into the local McDonald's (she was in her late 80s by then) in a huge pickup truck, complete with dual wheels, and her head visible just above the dashboard.
