Hopefully I’ll be able to resurrect this little post here. I always think its fun to look back on where you were the last year, how big the kids have gotten. Occasionally I’ll even come across a really sweet memory that I haven’t thought about in awhile. So, the point is its really fun and you know you wanna!!
About this time last year we made our way to the National Harbor on the DC/VA/MD border. It was our first time in the Harbor and it was lots of fun. There is definitely a lot to do with kids. There are lots of stores to visit, but be prepared for the “I want this” game, which will inevitably follow. Am I right?! After we hit up a couple of the stores, the Peep Store (which if you’ve never been, go now!!) and frozen yogurt, we made our way to the little beach/sand type area. There is a really cool sculpture there called “The Awakening“. Apparently it used to be by the Jefferson Memorial, but was purchased by the developers of the Harbor. We went on a weekend and it wasn’t overwhelmingly crowded, but I’m not totally averse to crowded places so keep that in mind.
If you want to share your memories from last year sometime this week come back and leave me the link! Want to share your post from last year on this date (ish) leave me the link to that!
My post last year was one of my post popular posts ever. It was entitled, “Let’s Make a Readiness Folder.” I wanted to help other spouses like myself. After having been stationed remotely for so many years, having gone through deployments and separations without the supports one would find on a base, or with a larger unit, I wanted to pass on what I had. Having a basic Readiness Folder is really important to your piece of mind while your spouse is gone. Even if you have one, just take a look at the post, see if you’re missing something, or pass it on to a friend.
have a great week everyone!
