Timeline for life in Saudi

A good friend of mine Sadie’s asks me questions about times and places after I post a story. We moved around allot in Saudi so I realized it might be confusing. I am posting a timeline for anyone who follows my story and finds it helpful.This timeline was compiled with the best intentions so if there are any errors I apologize in advance. Here it is and I tried to add pictures if I had them for each time period. Thanks for reading and supporting me!
