Yesterday while going through some boxes in our basement,
I came across my old journals. I couldn't stop laughing!
They are hilarious! I thought it would be fun to compare journal dates
with Claire and Jane when we were all the same age on the same day.
With their permission (and a little editing)
presenting March 11th in 1991, 2013, & 2014.

"Today I went to Subway with Courtney since it is her birthday
and the mean girl who was working asked the person behind me "Can I help you?"
She skipped me. At least she didn't call me a boy cuz that happens a lot too.
I babysat Van today and love it so much. I am going to babysit him
every day while Katy goes to school in the summer.
I can't wait! He is so cute and I love him so much.
I start my first horse lesson tomorrow!
I am excited! I've done really well on my YW personal progress booklet.
It's fun. I am listening to Carly Simon "Do The Walls Come Down".
Dad and the brothers are in LA at a Dodgers game
It's fun just having the girls home!
Well, see ya.
Cub signing off!"

"I am in bed right now. I am really bored but tomorrow is the 5th grade
dance practice, and I MIGHT talk to my secret admirer.
I am still thinking about it, even though everyone says
I should, but I don't think he even
likes me anymore. And even if he does, its still kind of awkward.
He wrote me a love note, and it was so sweet. So I think I will.

"I ski, and this is the WORST ski season ever.
All it is is skiing on slush and ice, and it's horrible.
I got a ski teacher and his name ski Frank and the kids in my class are
Isabelle, Blake, Harriet, Emma, and Taylor
(who is in a class with 5th graders but is the best skier ever) and
Oliver has a crush on her because she is really cute so ya, ski school
is really fun the next thing I am going to write about is:
I went to my friend Isabelle's birthday party, and it was so much fun!
Ok so I know that this was forever ago,
but it was really fun and we went to Arizona and stayed
with Livvy and Avrey it was really fun.
Also we moved into a brand new house it is the best ever."
