"The Good Ole' Song of Wahoowah, we'll sing it o'er and o'er,
It cheers our hearts and warms our blood, to hear them shout and roar.
We come from old Virginia, where all is bring and gay,
Let's all join hands and give a yell for dear old UVA."
Wahoowah! Wahoowah! Uni-V-Virgin-I-A! Hooraray! Hooraray! Ray! Ray! UVA!
There's really nothing quite like singing those words loud and clear--except doing just that with your little boy for the very first time!
That's right--Jackson attended his first UVA football game yesterday, and it was p.e.r.f.e.c.t. in every way. The weather was gorgeous . . . it was homecoming (my first since graduating in 2008) . . . and, although predicted to get creamed, the Cavaliers beat Georgia Tech! It was an incredibly exciting game--the final score was 24-21--and the whole day was fantastic. Jackson behaved wonderfully, and I really think he actually enjoyed himself. A music junkie, his favorite part was, naturally, the Cavalier marching band. We truly had a blast!
"Go Wahoos! Beat Georgia Tech!"
A HUGE win for Virginia!
And an even bigger rite of passage for this mama and her boy!
