But this year? This July? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. International T-Shirt Appreciation Month was not publicly celebrated. I thought maybe I was in error, maybe ITAM was actually August? But no. No. ITAM is held each year in July.
Regardless of the late date, I feel the need to share. ESPECIALLY after seeing Jacquie yesterday. I simply must. But I'm saving that best part until last.
2012 has been kind to our family in terms of new T shirts.
|First we have the Breakers All Star 2012 T shirt|
|With all team members featured proudly on the back. See my girl over there in the far left 8U team?|
|And going back to early November, this past year's Dia de los Muertos shirt, created by one of the school's 7th grade students. Love that event.|
|Ooh, and back a little farther. Just after last year's ITAM, I got a hold of this beauty. Love my Ben.|
|This is a very recent addition, belonging to my youngest. It's a PLAN fundraiser T shirt, supporting their campaign to fight gender inequality and promote girls rights worldwide.|
|Because, well, because she is a girl. And so is her sister, and her other sister, and her mom, and her cousin, etc., etc., etc.|
|Speaking of girl power.... How about those 8U Breakers, making it all the way to 'States'?! Held in beautiful Lancaster, CA. Coolest thing about this T shirt? It glows in the dark.|
|Oh, plus it has every girl from all 141 teams who participated listed on the back.|
|Whoot. whoot!! A Dutch Tavern hoodie of my very own!|
|I can hardly believe my good fortune. My girls totally enjoyed the happy dance that ensued when Jacquie bestowed it upon me. And I'm clearly still elated. Thanks, Jacq!|
Until next year..........
