One year ago sites like facebook and Twitter still seemed relatively new to many - now users have increased exponentially and both of my parents have accounts.
One year ago my daugher still didn't know about Dora the Explorer - now I sing the "map" song every night before bedtime, in the car, during dinner...
And one year ago today Missouri made history as the first state in the nation to begin a Recovery Act project - now Missouri has shown that investing in transportation creates jobs, boosts the economy and improves our roads and bridges.
See some of those improvements in the photos of that first-in-the-nation project, the Osage River Bridge.
And one year from now? Who knows, but I'll hopefully have expanded my repertoire of children's songs by then.
