World Cup and More Exersaucer

So you all know that Sammie loves soccer. The World Cup, which is held every four years, is a huge event for him. Four years ago, during the 2006 World Cup, we were living in a tiny condo in the DC area, couldn't afford cable tv, and were excited to start our family. Sammie was preparing for the GMAT so he could go to graduate school for his MBA. He would jokingly complain that he couldn't watch the world cup because he had to study. You know how he is about soccer... could he really give up the world cup for a good score on the GMAT? I would remind him that if he studied hard and did well, he could get into a good graduate program and then he could watch the next world cup on a big screen tv with Brad. Of course, we didn't realize that Brad would come into our home in a different way than we expected, but it was a happy day on Friday when Sammie sat down in front of his big screen tv, Brad in his lap, and watched the first two games of the world cup. I'm proud of him for working so hard!

Dreams really do come true! (That's an inside joke for Sammie.)

Maybe I can use the force to influence the game...

Mom, this is guy time.
Enjoy the video of Boo in his exersaucer. He's one happy little kid!

Pretty much all that has been on at our house. Pretty sweet watching your guys enjoy soccer together!

Wow, you guys are really "there." You have a baby, a job, a house, a big-screen TV. All you need now is a sister and her family living 2 minutes away!

Very cute! I'm so glad Sammie has a new soccer buddy. (Not that your efforts aren't valiant too, Melba!)
