Welcome back to the “A Look Back” link-up, where we remember one year from our past, each month! This month we are looking back at 1989! I hope you will write up a post and link up with us, so we can see what YOU were doing in 1989!
Okay, let’s get right to it!
I was four-turning-five in 1989.
We still lived in Old Orchard Beach, with our cat “Rascal” who was with us until I was in college!
My favorite thing to do was to play with my big brother, Christopher! We played outside on the swing set, and inside with our toys (including the viewfinder you see above) and doing “make-believe” games.
For my 5th birthday in May, we did a safari theme!
And I had this cabbage patch doll head cake…I don’t know how we cut that thing.
I graduated from nursery school, and in the fall I went to Kindergarten at a Catholic school, the next town over.
This was the year we took our first trip to Disney World! We drove down the east coast, stopping in each state to film one of us saying “hi” from that state. The photo above is from “South of the Border” in South Carolina. That was probably my first camera!
This picture…just had to be shared with the world.
We also visited Sea World, and I remember being extremely distraught that (while sitting in the “splash zone”) I got exactly ONE drop of water on my shorts! Rocking the visor.
Love this dress! Wish I had it now (in my size)!
Here’s some “Toddlers and Tiaras” for you! I was in the Little Miss Deering Oaks Pageant at the Deering Oaks Festival in Maine! I did not win, but I did get a sweet gift bag. Clearly this was not a glitz pageant.
My dapper Dad walked me across the stage, while they announced that my favorite food was cheeseburgers. Me too, five-year-old Megan, me too.
First day of Kindergarten! Knee socks were a must. I will have a Kindergartener of my own next year!
And here’s me at Christmas. I know you are jealous of my red Walkman. It was probably one of those that had a button that switched cassette sides, so you didn’t have to take the tape out and turn it around. I was cool like that.
Your turn! What was life like for you in 1989?
