The Lovebug Family branched off from the Sweethart family in Spring 2014. After the Beta Iota pledge class, the family grew from just being 2 active sisters to 6, with an additional 3 sisters added in that spring. Maddi & Alisa were the only two in their line after Maddi’s big, Zaynah graduated in Spring 2013, but with the Beta Iota pledge class, Alisa & Maddi both took twins. With all these new additions, the Lovebug family was surpassing the Sweethart Family in size, which prompted the branch off. The following spring, Riley, Jill & Maddi all took littles, bringing the family to 9. There are currently four generations of the Lovebug family still active, and this spring, the Lovebug family is looking to grow even more with the newest pledge class, the Beta Lambdas!! A fun tradition in the Lovebug family is for the big to give her little back any of the obnoxious things left behind in her room during Big/Little week (usually tinsel & confetti), a tradition beginning when Maddi (lovingly!!) covered Zaynah’s room in feathers, not realizing that feathers expand when removed from the bags they come in at Michaels.
