EC Homecoming

This weekend, 4 years after I graduated from college I went to my first Homecoming football game ever at Eureka College. It was GREAT seeing old friends and classmates, a lot of whom I still think of very fondly but haven't seen since graduation. A couple of things were odd - hanging out on the TKE lawn again, but this time I was holding a baby (though everyone else was holding beer); seeing SO many of my former classmates pushing strollers or holding babies; seeing people whose faces I remembered but whose names I could not recall. It was a lot of fun, and I'm very glad I went.

Today, I got out my photo albums from college. Here's two pictures in honor of two of the people I was most excited to see.

This one was taken in my dorm room at my "I'm going to San Francisco for the Summer" party.

This one was taken at the Senior Boat Party. I swear, even though it looks like he's touching me, he never did. Jacob is a perfect gentleman, which you maybe couldn't tell by his red boxers and his hat that reads, "Wisconsin: Land of Cowshit and Beer Farts."


  1. I agree that Jacob is a perfect gentleman. He was probably one of the nicest people that I ever met at EC. Any idea what he is up to these days? Hopefully doing well!

  2. Hey Bonn! I found your blog by googling my sister's name. Therefore, I stumbled across your e-mail as well. I will send you a note. Lydia is adorable, and I loved watching her first solid food experience. I was laughing along with you. Her facial expressions were priceless.

  3. Jacob is such a great guy and is also one of the nicest people I have ever met. I talk to him reasonably frequently, but I wish he didn't live all the way up near Chicago, so I could see him more. It's neat reading your blog! :)
