Part of the joy of the World Cup has been watching the games and celebrating with our kids. (You know... when we're not at crazy bars...)
The kiddos have all been working on their sticker books for months, and today we enjoyed the uber family-friendly Atlanta Soccerfest.
Here's a quick video check-in. The kids and our husbands even make cameos! And look at us... so Americana.
Unfortunately, I forgot to where my awesome, sparkly top hat for the video. It was a big hit on the train ride to the game!
(Note: If you're reading this via email or RSS, you may need to click here to watch the video.)
And what a game it turned out to be! We had to leave at half-time because... you know... children. But we saw the U.S.'s first goal while we were riding the train back. Billy let out a quiet yelp.
Then on the car ride from the train station to home, I watched on Billy's phone and narrated. The ball was kicked. Kicked again! 2 minutes left. Portugal has it. Now the U.S. People are head-butting it back and forth. (It was a lot like this.)
Let's just say at some point he asked me to stop. But I didn't want him to miss anything. I'm a good wife like that. LOL.
So I hope you are continuing to enjoy the international festivities. If you are looking for fun ways to engage your children, here are a couple sites to check out:
