So, if you’ve been reading for a while, you may know that we are pretty large Arkansas Razorback fans in this house. It’s our alma mater. We love football. The “team spirit” is like no other. I like the color red. Fayetteville is a beautiful and amazing place. The list goes on.
When deciding on Sloane’s middle name, Sooie was on our list 🙂 It wasn’t on there long, but we seriously considered it. Brent randomly said it one night and we both kind of thought it was cute next to Sloane. For a few weeks one of us thought it would be great and one wasn’t so sure. Our opinions flipped. Some of our friends and family liked it and some didn’t.
I guess I always thought the word “sooie” had something to do with pigs because…well I’m not sure why. It doesn’t technically derive from anything pig style, haha. The word was actually coined by the University of Arkansas in order to “call the hogs” as part of our undying team spirit, haha. Who knew.
We ultimately decided Sloane’s middle name would not be Sooie because we were mainly worried she wouldn’t like it. Thoughtful of us, maybe. haha.
We will still continue to have lots of team spirit…win or lose.
We will still continue to sport and collect awesome flair. It’s ridiculous, I know.
We will also continue to sport razorback red and cute little Razorback outfits 🙂
The kids are still growing into all of their outfits, but they are pretty stinking cute.
