No Card Today

No card today, 22 years ago I had just received my Bachelor of Education and secured a job as a high school teacher, bought my first car and on this day married my high school sweetheart!  The years have brought triumphs and challenges and two wonderful children. I had such big plans to create a video montage for my husband but this summer has flown by, especially the past two weeks.  So I have a picture of a very happy day to share instead.  Wow dresses were big in 1990!


This weekend was the Ontario Summer Games in which my son played rugby 7's for the Region of Toronto.  The boys ended up winning the plate final and the cup final.  Ben scored four try's today but with 1 1/2 minutes left in their final game he took a tackle from behind and got a concussion.  That is what scares me about contact sports.  Fortunately it is a mild concussion, but he has a nasty headache and an aching jaw tonight from the impact on the ground.  After he finished up with the medic on site he asked "Did we win?".  Boys...and yes they did.

Congratulations!!
And not only were dresses big back in the 90's...
so was hair!! :)
I know that someday huge hair will come back in fashion and I can stop trying to fight it and let mine do what it wants to do naturally! *giggle*
And hope Ben feels better soon!
Uugghhh...

We just started football and my little guy is a walking bruise...

Wow--happy anniversary. And, many, many more. You were such a sweet looking couple, and it sounds like you are just as in love today as you were back then. I hope Ben heals swiftly--the young generally do--and is off to play again soon. Have a wonderful day. Joyce

Happy Anniversary, Tracey and cutie-pie! You're as darling a couple as couples can be! I'm glad Sonny only has a mild concussion. That's a serious business. Enjoy your concert if I'm not back before Thursday!!

Happy Anniversary, Tracey!!! I hope your son feels better! I'm glad they won! I agree with you...contact sports are scary! I hold my breath everytime my child is knocked to the ground playing soccer!
