Today's the Day!

We've looked forward to this day for a LONG time! Today my son makes his debut in the University of Illinois Marching Illini. We are so excited to be part of the fun and to see him perform in such a prestigious band. We have been rewarded with 2 season tickets, so we will be making the trek to Memorial Stadium in Champaign to enjoy the day. (Well as much as you can enjoy when the temperature is 97 degrees and you burn to a crisp quite easily!) Here is his band portrait that was taken last week. Needless to say, we will be purchasing a large print.

Isn't he a good looking kid? You'll probably be hearing me brag on him all season long...and probably posting more photos. In fact, you will probably get sick of me posting about it. I know my FB friends are! LOL! If the Illini make it to a bowl game, we plan on following along. So all I can say is ILL-INI!!

And if you aren't convinced I am proud, check out my new custom Marching ILLINI Mom polo I had made. DH got Dad polos. We wore our orange ones yesterday and will wear our white ones to the game today. I had a few adorable outfits for my daughter created too that I will share during the season.
