Have You Heard...

Here in Austin, one of our local high schools has a roadrunner as their mascot.  So it's not uncommon to see shirts with various "Bird" images on them.

Like this one:


So when I saw this one...

I knew we needed it for the Bird.  

I mean, really, doesn't this picture just instill fear in your heart?

Well, a few days ago, a sweet friend delivered a treat just for Lily Bird.  Come to find out, there is a new "Bird" phrase t-shirt at the high school this year.  But we think it's still quite appropriate for our Bird:   

Have you heard

Bird is the word

What do you think?  Just perfect, right?

Have yourself a merry little weekend, friends!
