2009 >>> 2019

Our Family in 2019

As we come up on the end of a decade, it’s natural to look back and see how much has happened in the last ten years.

With this particular decade that’s drawing to a close, it’s become popular — especially on social media — to post a picture of oneself from 2009 and a picture of oneself from 2019.

For me, though, it feels like there are so many “self”s from which to choose! And honestly, I feel like myself is the least interesting of them all.

Marci hasn’t changed much, either.

Our children, however, demonstrate much more dramatic differences!

Cor’s transformation over the last decade has been the greatest — from Age 2 to Age 12 — so it was the hardest to choose a comparison photo for him (so many cute options from which to choose).

In addition to the members of our nuclear family, it was fun to look back through old photos and see the differences in our church community from 2009 to the present.

I’m very thankful for both the past and the present that I get to observe this Thanksgiving.
