I love the Internet Way Back Machine (web.archive.org). You can go back in time and see how a website has evolved. Below, you will see the birth of The Perpetual Preschool on a free AOL page to what it looks like today at 18 years old. So many hours of blood, sweat, and tears have gone into this endeavor.
You will notice that from 2005-2015, there were not a lot of changes to the site. In 2005, congestive heart failure reared its ugly head in my life. I was only 40 years old. My prognosis was dire. I was not expected to live a year.
The work I was able to do with The Perpetual Preschool and the workshops I teach, kept me going. I had a taste of normalcy and purpose.
I am happy to say that I have beat the odds for 11 years. I have had multiple surgeries, hospital stays, and pacemakers. There are days I am so fatigued that I remain in bed. Through all of this, I have had my trusty laptop that keeps me connected to the profession I dearly love.
I hope that The Perpetual Preschool has blessed you as much as it has me. I am looking forward to the next 18 years of evolution!
