Then there were two...

For the past 2 weeks I have been the lone Saints soldier at school. I am the one and only Saints fan. Needless to say, every teacher, student, and parent has let me know that I'm rooting for the wrong team. Everyday I hear chants of "Go Colts! The Saints are going down!". Everyday. I'm not exaggerating. Sometimes 5 kids get in my face as I'm sitting down and I have to be like "Whoa, back up off me". I have told my kids that I am a Saints fan, however, it is perfectly ok for them to be a Colts fan. I don't want to persuade 3 year olds to side with me, because they will. Anyway, the whole school met for singing in the lobby this morning. Everyone was yelling "Go Colts!", and I had a huge burst of home sickness. I kept thinking there were so many schools in Louisiana that were chanting "Go Saints" and I was in the wrong school. Wrong state for that matter. Then in walks Oscar.... This is the cutest little boy I have ever met and he's in my class. This morning he told his mom he wanted to dress like me. So his mom put him in his Purdue jersey since it's the same colors as the Saints. He walks in and immediately my arms go in the air and I'm yelling "YYEESSSS!!!" Even though he's 3, it felt so good having one person on my side. I didn't feel quite so alone anymore. It's amazing that one little gesture from the goodness of his heart has completely made my day and made my home sickness not so bad anymore. So Thanks Oscar, you may only be 3 but you made this 27 year old have an amazing day!
