Where were you ....???

I saw this somewhere in Blogland this week and it totally made me pause and reflect. Wow - life marches on!

30 years ago - Newly married for just 4 months, living in a little tiny house on the farm.

25 years ago - Mom to 4 little ones - 5 months, 21 months, 3 years and 4 years old.

20 years ago - Our youngest one had just gone to kindergarten.

15 years ago - We had just come home from an awesome family trip to Disneyland.

10 years ago - It was my first year of teaching grade 3 fulltime.

5 years ago - We had sold our dairy cows that summer - big change in daily routine, especially for the winter.

2 years ago - Reflecting about how much I had learned and how much I enjoyed teaching after working with teachers in Belize that summer.

1 year ago - Planning a trip to Asia in the summer, wrapping Christmas gifts to send to Taiwan - no idea that we were on our way to becoming grandparents.

1 month ago - Preparing for Meadow's baptism.

Yesterday - Doing some Christmas shopping at Canadian Tire, after a long busy week at school.

Tomorrow - Going to visit Meadow and creating some card samples for our noon hour kids club to produce this week.

So ----- how about you? Let me know - I am so curious!!
