Clemson Pride

A year ago when our family had just moved to SC, we were browsing a local sporting goods shop when Boy found a hat that he did not want to take off. Obviously, we were not fans of the Tigers, or the Gamecocks or any other SC we were not all too interested in purchasing a $10 Clemson hat for a 2 year old. However....he was so darn cute...

It made us laugh. In truth, I have never completely understood being a die hard fan of a school you never attended. And I certainly don't comprehend doing things like THIS even IF YOU DID attend the school:

A year ago we caved and bought Boy the Clemson hat!

...maybe it was foreshadowing....

A year later, I am proud to announce that sweet Daddy was accepted into the doctoral program at Clemson. His focus will be instruction and curriculum in special education. He has also been invited to work with the Clemson Life program, which is a live-on campus transition program that focuses on life skills, autonomy and preparing the students to enter the work place. We are very excited about this new phase in his life.

So.....we will let Boy wear his hat with pride, and maybe we will purchase a few more Clemson items before our first football game.

(but hopefully this "pride" will never translate into any full body tattoos)


  1. That is very exciting. Congrats to Mr M. Looks like things are moving forward smoothly. I can't imagine being pregnant much less in this intense summer heat. Glad you are back on your blog.

  2. I do not want to imagine what would possess a person to tattoo their body that way. I can't think of anything in life I love more than my kids, and I would never tattoo a big portrait of them on my back. =) Congrats to M! Y'all are in for a ride!

  3. that tattoo the jackass guy has of himself on his weird.
