"Sooner born, Sooner bred. When I die, I'm Sooner dead."
Kendi wasn't exactly Sooner born, but she will be Sooner bred!!! Eric and I are both OU alumni and former members of The University of Oklahoma March Band. Tonight on our date night we picked out Kendi's first OU stuff. Every year before football season Gillispie kids MUST have a new OU "something" to start the year off right! We got Kendi this cute outfit, with OU on the back of the bloomers. And to top it off we just HAD to get her the "Oklahoma 101" board book, with such important information as school colors, the name of the band, Alma Mater words, and mascot! LOL! Mommy might have to sneak it into her homecoming backpack so she can study these important matters on the way to America. =-)
Kendi will miss being home for the first "Game Day" of the season by just a few days, but she'll have plenty of time this football season to learn how to say such important things as "Boomer Sooner," "Go OU," and "Texas stinks!"
P.S. Do NOT waste your money on the movie "District 9." We were so disappointed. =-(
