Yesterday Colombia played an amazing game, securing their spot in the quarter-finals. According to Juan David, they have never made it this far before, so we're pretty psyched. It's funny watching the games because we watch them simultaneously via facebook with all of our other friends who are either Colombian, live in Colombia, have adopted from Colombia, or are currently in Colombia finalizing their adoption. One posted a video from her apartment in Bogota after Colombia scored a goal. You could hear cheers and horns honking all over the city. The entire country is celebrating!
I found some red, blue, and yellow paint in the closet, and Juan David's face just lit up. He ran to the bathroom and started painting away. Here's what it looked like in our house during the game. (I'm learning just how passionate Colombians are about soccer).
