A Beautiful Game for So Many Reasons

Leigh Rawdon

We’ve had many conversations surrounding other cultures these last few weeks.  We are pulling out maps, talking about language, sharing history and stories. The World Cup is making the world super real for my boys.

We are lucky to live in the Bay Area, where children are sporting jerseys from many corners of the world.  We’re presented with the opportunity to discuss why Sean is rooting for Manchester United and why Marc loves Mexico.  We see connections between our neighbors to the world at large.

My kids have picked Argentina as their favorite team. No personal connection.  Just my eight year old’s love for Lionel Messi and my five year old’s love for his older brother.

I think this might be just the excuse I needed to start planning a trip to Argentina…
