Title Managing Through Childhood
Description four games to play on it. He was so excited to give it to them and they had so much fun with it for years. Birthdays were always remembered with a birthday cake and a special meal. There was a big wicker rocker in the kitchen by the stove. This was the favorite spot for everyone. One day, big brother Melvin was sitting in the rocker, but he went to get something. Nida seized the opportunity and sat in the chair. When Melvin returned and saw her there, he got mad and tipped her and the chair over and it broke. This scared Nida so much that she made her mother laugh, but the chair was beyond repair. When Nida was about fourteen years old, Elmo's mother told Lizzie that he thought Nida was cute. She had never thought of him as a boyfriend but now she looked at him differently. He was good looking and had such good manners. He helped her brother Melvin by talking him into staying in school and graduating. He began to come to her house to see her without the rest of the family. He walked along the ditch that ran through the fields between their houses, or sometimes he rode his bike around on the road. Nida didn't like the sound of the coyotes howling at night when he went home alone. As they dated, they went dancing often. There was a dance at Chester every Wednesday night, and Moroni and other towns had dances on Saturdays. They had so much fun dancing twice a week almost every week. They went to the movies and of course there were the family get-togethers. Elmo worked for Arthur at times, so he was there for dinner those times. These two families managed through the hard times and these two married and melded the two families together forever. The Swain family later moved to Payson to stay. The Reynolds family name continued on in Sanpete as the couple made their home in C^ncster. Sources: Personal knowledge of Elmo and Nida Reynolds. 40
