Title A Time for Growing Up
Description from both World Wars. The seven tiny graves In a row on one family plot always brought a lump to my throat. How could folks stand to bury seven babies? We were young and carefree those many years ago and didn't realize the memories in the making, our priceless heritage, and the privilege it was to grow up in a quiet little town boasting two cemeteries. The Givirvs Family: On the grave marker and a plaque placed by Utah Veterans of Blackhawk War, the name is spelled GIVINS. On a State Historical marker placed by DUP in Thistle Valley, the name is spelled GIVEN. * * * A TIME FOR GROWING UP Sherrie Ahlstrom Hundley 443 North 750 East Orem, UT 84057 First Place Short Story The ornate, wooden clock stood on its shelf in the kitchen and chimed out the early morning hour.

The snow lay in deep, soft mounds on the ground, but the sun promised to be pleasantly warm for a winter day. The children In the sleigh huddled close together, warm with anticipation. This was the day of the Spring City rabbit hunt. Most of the men and boys had already gone to the fields outside of town. Orland was taking his young children in the sleigh, the snow too deep for their small legs and the distance too far. He had also promised to take along his young sister-in-law, Grace. She was twelve, older than the other children, but she had never been on a hunt 108
