I've been tagged by Spaghettipie for this fun meme and need to respond to this question: What were you doing ten, twenty and thirty years ago?

Ten years ago, I was a freshman in college. (The same college where my husband and I now live and serve.) I was planning to major in elementary education (later switched to secondary English education) and had a roommate named Hayley. (Click on the link for a photo) I was 750 miles from home and more homesick than I'd anticipated. My work-study position was cleaning the hallways and bathrooms in our woman's dorm--a humbling but profitable experience. In addition to classes, work and hanging out with friends, I was an editor on the yearbook staff.

Twenty years ago, I was in the third grade. My teacher's name was Mrs. Cann, and I had just started attending a new elementary school in Colorado Springs. I was a voracious reader and loved playing games. This photo was taken by my grandma on a trip to the mountains with my great-uncle, John, and my sister. (Gotta love those matching Hawaiian print caps!)
Thirty years ago, I wasn't even a blink in my parents' eye. (Thus, no photo!)

There you have it. I'm tagging Abbey, Susan and Kat!

So, in that photo are you at RMNP? It looks familiar to me. Very, very cute photo!

Enjoy your Thursday!

You know, I had a Hawaiian print cap just like those! It must be an age thing - I think we're probably close in years. Have a great day.

Oh yeah, I got tagged! I'm so excited! I'll do it this weekend.
I love the picture of you and your sister... how fun!
Fortunately, I'm at my Mom's and she'll have pictures I can use!
