So typically my blogs revolve in some way around my little trio. For today's blog, I had to stop and think for a minute how I could mesh my past with my present and my future! And I think I figured it out.
So if you know me personally, then you likely know my sister, Mary. I have followed her around pretty much my entire life. Literally. We were always one grade apart in school. She went to college at Arizona State, so a year later, I went to college at Arizona State. She joined Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority, so a year later, I joined Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority. She became a teacher at Cottonwood, so I became a teacher at Cottonwood. (Ok, there were a few deviations here and there, but you get my point.)
So anyway, call us cheesy, I don't care! Mary is my sister and also my "sorority sister." We shuttered today at the thought that we pledged Theta 14 and 15 years ago!! Holy cow! I remember it like it was one year ago! Well today was the 50th anniversary celebration of our chapter, Delta Epsilon, at Arizona State. So Mary and I drove up to Tempe, met my best friend, Jen Baxter (now Borquez) and we went to the luncheon which was put on and hosted by the Collegiate chapter. (The girls in college now). It was a wonderful time, especially because we met up with quite a few girls from our pledge class and a couple before and after us as well! (If you are one of those girls, HELLO! It was great seeing you all again!)
So how does this have anything to do with the babies? So maybe it's a stretch, but I like to think that someday (much to my husband's dismay) Hunter will become a Theta too! Pledge Class of Fall 2027! Whoa! Is that ever weird? The boys...yeah, I don't know, maybe they could marry Thetas or something! :) But-in honor of mine and Aunt Mary's (and soon to be Aunt Kristen's) Alma Mater, they DID get dressed up in their Sun Devil Clothing!
