It`s All About Futbol

Posted on November 17, 2008 - Filed Under Guatemala, Kids |

For those of you who live in North America, futbol is soccer. Just in case you didn`t know. ;) It`s Papi Fut season here, which means the whole town turns out in the evenings to hang out in the park, listen to music over the town loudspeakers and sip sweet coffee in plastic cups while they watch the young men play futbol. It`s a great time, but I haven`t been in eons, since the boys go to bed early. However, I think it`s time to start breaking some rules . . . after all, it`s almost December and soon the firecrackers and processions and fireworks will be keeping them up till all hours, right?

This week, I`m determined to get out of the house. Even if it means a late nap for my two little guys. And we`ll head down to watch Papi Fut, because my guys are all about the ball. And the fut. Cuz they`re totally Guatemalan dudes!

I probably won`t be posting for a day or two because Jessie just totally freaked me out with her Christmas decorating and I`m going into panic mode. I haven`t even started making gifts yet and my sewing machine is broken and I have to figure out if I can fix it myself or find someone who can, since Irving hasn`t yet made good on his promise to take a look.

    Nooo! You can’t go into panic mode because of me! I haven’t started making gifts yet either. I’m still in the idea gathering stage. You aren’t behind, I’m just early!

    Panic mode… Is that when there has been NO (and I mean NO) shopping done? That might also include planning what to get as well!!!!!
