"Fifty nifty United States..."

I've had a personal mission/game I've been playing for the last year and a half or so.

I noticed that in addition to wearing t-shirts with interesting/funny English, students were also sporting apparel of different U.S. states. So I decided to see how many of these state shirts I could get pictures of.

My total is 44 out of 50. Not bad. The six states I'm missing are: Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, and Vermont.

I've made a whole ablum of "U.S.A. t-shirts" that you can access by clicking on the title over on the right side. (Or you can click here.)

Here are a few of my favorites from the album...

"Come here, West Virginia..."

This boy could be part of the Lollipop Guild from The Wizard of Oz -- he has the same expression.

So. Precious.

I love the boy doing the army crawl in the background.

Preschool buddies--so cute!

And here are a few photos that aren't in the album because they're kids wearing t-shirts of countries...

Well, peace out for now...

In about 30 minutes I'm going to the station to welcome my family to Kuji! I'm excited to show them around and have them experience my Japanese life. :)

I remember trying to find all the different states when I was there. I will have to say it was pretty fun!

What about Franklin College shirts?
