Here, but not there



During the 2006 FIFA World Cup, we were spending the summer in Italy and living in a beautiful farmhouse in the heart of Tuscany.


EVERYONE received Italian soccer jerseys from our Italian relatives.
P.S. Italy won this year.




During the 2010 FIFA World Cup, we were exploring Rome, Naples, and the Amalfi Coast.


Again, we received jerseys.
And yes, that Italian clapper was a McDonald's Happy Meal toy
given in honor of the World Cup.


And during the 2014 FIFA World Cup ... where are we?


Here, and not there. :-(

My son's graduation party/goodbye he's going to grad school party was on the day of the finals of the 2010 World Cup. We arranged stadium seating of sorts and all watched the game. I believe I was the only non futbol fan in the room.

Can't believe that was four years ago, but I am sitting in the same place as then...
