Memories and Pride

I squealed with excitement as I opened a package, as I knew exactly what was in it!

Rewind a couple of years back.....Every single time we went to the valley where I grew up, I would go to Walmart to look for a t-shirt from my high school, Edinburg High School. Never found it though! They always had shirts for Edinburg North and for JE High School, but never EHS.

So a couple of months ago, my sister's high school friend, and now the current principal's lovely wife and I made a deal :) I would trade her a scarf for a Bobcat shirt! What a deal! I know, you are probably thinking, "what is she going to do with a scarf in the valley?" Well, I made it very lacy and airy, so it wasn't too hot, but would keep her warm when needed. I got it mailed off to her awhile back, but had to wait a bit to get the shirt from her.

I have such pride in my high school and have great memories of being in band, lunch periods, yearbook, and all of the amazing teachers that I will never forget. I loved going to those football games on Friday nights. If you have never been to a Texas high school football game, you don't know what you are missing. It's amazing! Anyways, these t-shirts give me back a little of my youth and a lot of memories.

My wait as rewarded when she sent me a shirt for myself, a shirt for Brynn, and a shirt to sleep in. I was so excited!! Thanks Debbie!!
