Go Colts!

Starting tomorrow, my little sister Tessa will be a freshman in high school. I know I sound old when I say things like this, but it feels like I just walked her home from kindergarten, yesterday. I cried when she started kindergarten, so you can only imagine how much I’m freaking out about this.

The Colts shirt was passed down from my mom, to my older sister Nicole, to me, to Amanda, back to me, and now to Tessa Marie. It’s kind of neat that all of us went to the same high school – and that, as horse people, our mascot is a colt!

Love Love,
Keiko Lynn  p.s. I am lucky to have such a great little sister. When I said that they treat you like young adults in high school, she replied, “But I like being a kid!” I hope she never loses that quality:)

    Oh man, I can't believe you went to Coral Springs High! That's only like an hour away from my house.

    that is really nice to pass things down like that and have it last so long. That is also awesome that you all have gone to the same school. memories!!! hehe.

    It is nice that you are so a part of her life even with the distance in age. My oldest brother is almost 10 years older than me and he always apologizes because he missed out on most of my life trying to find his own. I didn't really ever see him between second grade and up until I was 20. I adjusted to it as a kid so it didn't really bother me too much.

    Today I started my first day back to school, too … as a teacher. This is my 5th year teaching high school, 1st year teaching freshmen. Oh, and our school mascot is also a horse! We go by "the thoroughbreds." πŸ™‚
