Back then...

Lately I've been realizing how much things have changed since I was a little girl. I headed outside and, surprising myself, I plopped onto the swing in my backyard- the swing I used to spend hours on every day. I hadn't touched that thing in months until I used it this afternoon. Strange how things gradually change over time, and we don't even realize it. I mean, it's not like one day I said "I'm not going to swing on this thing anymore". I guess as we grow up these habits just keep decreasing until they don't exist anymore. 

back then I sat in the yard making mud dishes and stews.

now if I'm in the backyard I'm usually picking up dog poop or taking photos.

back then I did ballet,

hid in linen closets, 

 spent hours playing with my sister, 

and read book after book to her.

now I do track, don't hide in linen closets very often (except on rare occasions), don't "play" with my sister like we used to, and I don't remember the last time I read a book to her. But she's growing up too, I guess.

However, some things don't  really change. 

back then I liked to cook. and...

now I still like to cook. 

back then I liked to ride horses. and...

now I still enjoy it. 

back then I loved s'mores and getting sticky... and anything sweet. :)

now I still do... probably even more!

And... back then I was a goober.

needless to say, I still am now. :)

I hope you enjoyed this! Much Love and a hug!
