Hola de Chile

When I was 7 months pregnant with Henry, Brian took a group of students from Birmingham-Southern to Chile for a Service Learning course. As in most Latin American countries, soccer is one of the most popular sports. So Brian, in effort to acclimate himself and to educate our unborn child, bought our child this soccer uniform. Complete with knee socks that cover Henry's first two thigh rolls.
True to form, Henry put on the outfit and immediately started kicking everything in site. He found this soft "block" and launched it across the room.

Before the Kick:

After the Kick:

The fabric of the uniform is like 150% polyester (I know because Brian bought me a jersey that's short sleeved and when i wear it outside in windy 19 degree weather, I still have sweaty armpits). Anyway, after Henry got done kicking, he settled down with some Brown Bear, Brown Bear. What would Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle think?

BTW, Cristal is the yummy beer there.
