Mary and I had a wonderful mommy/daughter date this morning. We started out by going into Horton’s and she got to pick whatever she wanted.She was so excited to have a whole apple juice to herself that she only had three bites of the cookie!
After that we went thrift store shipping. It was really fun and she picked out a few books. I always have great intentions to look at everything but I rarely come out of a thrift store with anything other than books. We found some really cool books, this one especially excited me:
This is the atlas that I used when I was in elementary school. I loved looking at atlases as a child, I was thrilled to see it on the shelves of the bookstore.
Once I got home I was flipping through the pages and reminiscing about colouring maps and other geography assignments when I got to this page:
Hmm. Something isn’t right here! I don’t know if you can see it but I’m pretty sure the ‘Union of Soviet Socialist Republic’ is no longer in existence. That made me feel old.
So I guess that when my kids are ready we will be buying a new atlas. I’m going to keep this one though, Mary has already spent some time flipping through it with me and I suppose it will be a good example of how things change over time.
