World Cup

Holland has been doing surprisingly well in this World Cup. We made it through the group by winning all three matches. Today we played Mexico in our first knockout. What a crazy, nerve-racking game that was! Mexico scored shortly after the start of the second half. Five minutes before the end of the game, when nearly all hope was lost, Holland managed to score, bringing it to 1-1. With just two minutes left in the stoppage time, Holland was granted a penalty. We scored, and won!! Woot, woot!

Lots of was had in the Zuiderpark today.  Lunch, football, frisbee, you name it!  Benjamin loves to pluck the little flowers ever so gently (and then rips them apart).  Despite the overcast skies, it was actually really warm outside.  And the good news is, it looks like this warm weather is here to stay the rest of the he week, too!

Weekend without Papa

This weekend Tom is off to Milan, Italy, for work.  Things have been going surprisingly smooth on the home front.  The kids have been very nice, the weather has been agreeable, and the days are flying by.  After dinner last night we went to the playground.  Meanwhile, Tom was going box with a roman statue.  Thank goodness for FaceTime; the distance doesn't seem that far.
