My Godmother’s son started college on Monday. It makes me feel old. To all of them, I am old… but I’ve always been “the baby” to my mom’s friends, keeping me young. Seeing the next round of kids start college negates this long standing idea. Scary. (I’ve LONG been out of college, for those who are wondering!)
But, this is going to be fun. See, Big Boy is now a Mountaineer. I am a Wildcat. Big East rivalry.
For his graduation party, I made West Virginia medallion cookies.
I couldn’t let the opportunity pass to remind him who reigns. So I simply tucked in a few Villanova cookies among the WVU cookies. It didn’t take him too long to notice…
I also made East Carolina medallions for another family member who is off to ECU (the pirate mascot was a bit much for me to throw together at the last minute!).
To all those who are starting school – old and young – good luck and enjoy the ride.
And stay tuned to see who wins this year’s Big East basketball bragging rights. I think you know where I stand on this issue.
V for Villanova… V for Victory!!!
