Here is a tag from my friend Kim. Where I've been and where I'm going.
20 years ago...
1. 7 years old, living in the "green house" as we all liked to call it. It was green on the outside, and just about everything on the inside was green too.
2.Lots of playing outside with our neighbors, Leslie and Lauren. And lots of getting in trouble for giggling too late at night (Carrie, Taryn, and I all shared a room).
10 years ago...
1.17 years old, trying to make it through one last year of high school
2.Working hard to make up all of the seminary I didn't attend in the last 4 years (I'm proud to say I finished all the work and officially graduated from Seminary before I started BYU!).
5 years ago...
1.Trying to focus on school while getting ready for our wedding. Oddly, that was one of my best semesters.
2.I was exercising a lot. I wish I had that same focus and determination now.
1 year ago...
1.We took Jack on his first trip out of the country (to Jamaica for Danielle's wedding).
2.We also went to Taryn's wedding in TX, and Eric's cousin's wedding in Chicago.
So far this year...
1.Found out we're having a baby, and its a girl!
2.Sent a brother and a brother-in -law off on missions.
1.Prepared my lesson for my primary class, and made handouts for activity days.
2.Made the mistake of letting my 20 month old fall asleep at 7:45 and paid dearly for it this morning.
1.Went to church.
2.Went on a walk with my family to the park.
1.We'll probably go to the library. We read through every book Jack owns at least 3 times a day. We're all ready for something new.
2.I need to dust.
1.We'll add a little girl to the mix!
2.My in-laws are coming out here to celebrate Grandma's 80th!
In the next year...
1.We'll move to a new house (still in Evanston).
2.A lot more of the same old stuff along with learning to balance life with 2 kids.
In the next 5-10 years...
1.We'll probably be done having kids (somewhere in the ballpark of 5).
2.Hopefully we'll be back in TX, or somewhere a little bit closer to family.
There you have it! If you feel like reminiscing about the good old days, feel free to continue the tag!
