Nine years ago today, I took my kids to the Children’s Museum of Houston.
Nine years ago today, I ate (for the first time in my life) Frito Pie, compliments of Residence Inn by Marriott.
Nine years ago today, I learned how to text, very proficiently.
Nine years ago today, I cried in the arms of a stranger named Shannon.
Nine years ago today, my family was the family submitting clothing sizes and the kind of basic wish lists that you usually only see during charity adopt-a-family drives during the holiday season.
What a difference nine years can make. Thanks again, Mound City Elementary.
