[In our collapsing period. Yes, that means what it sounds like... we all collapsed on top of each other. Notice the sophomores' expressions in the back]
It's a classic Memorial tradition. Nerd Day. Freshman and senior students alike trade in their designer jeans, polos, glowing straightened hair, and contact lenses for Girl Scout vests, suspenders, scrunchie pig tails and bulky glasses.
Don't believe me? I'll let you witness it for yourselves.
Kelly, Jordan and I before the school day. Note Kelly's rolling backpack. Jordan was proud to say she got her denim skirt straight from momma's closet.
The ones that go above and beyond (like Erin here) sport head gear, retainers, fanny packs, long denim get-ups, pepper spray, helmets, bandages, calculators tucked into their pockets, and carry around their Bio II book all day just for looks.
Lexi and I. We're going to be sorority sisters at Texas...well, that's what my dream from a few nights back predicted anyway. And after I told her all about it, we decided we liked the idea!
Some of the freshmen girls I've gotten to know and love! Way to get in the spirit, fishies.
Ryan, a sneaky Brooke and I in the courtyard during a passing period. On game days, the cheerleaders blast music throughout the halls. As fun as it is, it's just as much stressful because so much of the music that people like these days isn't exactly school hallway appropriate.
Aubs and I while the masses head in for the second pep rally of the year.
Madison (a former JV cheer mate) and I. Love you, Mads. You lucky duck got to get a pic with the triple-threat :)
As exciting as this pep rally was, it doesn't nearly compare to the excitement of the game that night. We played Pearland and from the looks of the first 4 minutes, we were in deep trouble. But, to our pleasant surprise, we gave the oilers a run for their money by the 4th quarter. With 50 seconds on the clock, we tied up the game 42-42...and we even did it by going for 2 on the last touchdown. All of us were jumping 10 feet in the air before Pearland made one last touchdown with 30 seconds left. Despite the loss, it was an exciting game and proved our ability to come back. It even made the front of the sports page the next day. So way to go boys!
No game this week. And I'm not complaining. But don't think that eliminates practice...heaven forbid! We've got lots of prepping for our Western pep rally next Thursday. Giddy up 'stangs.
