*I've been asked to post this part, but warning- it is really nerdy** The morning he left, we made this paper chain. (I had made one for him when I went to Germany for my high school exchange trip, so it seemed perfect to make one now) Each week is a different color to help me see the passage of time. As you can see, I've nearly finished week one- there is only one yellow link left!
The white links (kind of hard to see but there are two, the first one is in the center) represent the days that I'm planning on visiting him.
Here is my jersey, I really like how they turned out. The executives surprised us by buying the hats to wear- they say casting director on back- haha I bought my cleats (Adidas with pink stripes!! Woohoo!) and now all I need are my baseball pants and tall socks- and yes, I am planning to wear them. If you're going to do something... might as well go all the way, huh? :)
