a very american sunday

Yesterday, on our last weekend day together as a family before Flynn and I head back to Cotonou, we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and head to a park.

Hi from the park!
Mom, stop making me wave. It's embarassing!
Let's get this show started, Mom.
Wheeeeeee!
Wait. Who's that cute girl over on that other swing? Hi there!

Flynn also enjoyed the slide and trying to eat leaves, grass, flowers and whatever else he found on the ground. He saw people playing volleyball, tennis, baseball, soccer and even cricket, and his dad told him a little about each sport except the last one. “I’ll let you in on a secret, son,” Andy said. “Cricket’s not a real sport. It’s just a trick the Brits and the Indians play on us Americans to make us feel stupid.”

If we’re ever posted to India I’ll be sure to enroll Flynn in cricket Little League pronto; I can just imagine the scowl on Andy’s face as he sits with the other parents in the cheering section…

    Hey, they play it in NZ too 🙂 My boys actually like it. This year after Thanksgiving dinner we had a game of Cricket in the back yard instead of Football (which is actually soccer here anyway).

  3. I love your skirt! Those are great pictures of you two. Hope you’ve made it home safely by now without too much airport trauma. We leave in 10 hours…..WEEEEEEEEEE!!! Suppose I’d better start packing.
