Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

One week ago, La Celeste faced Argentina’s national team in Mendoza. JM wrote what I called a “cultural news flash” previous to that game.

The final score was 1 to 0. As JM commented the next day: “For us, it was a match we could afford to lose... And we did.”

But we enjoyed a little outing (and some brick-oven pizza!) as a family.

On Tuesday evening, the game was local – in the Estadio Centenario, only a couple blocks from where we live. So we went – thanks especially to the gracious gift of friends who accompanied us to the local match against Chile (back in mid-November).

A cold drizzle threatened to dampen the mood of the evening – but not for long!

The first half ended with Uruguay winning 3 to 0 – with goals from Edi Cavani, Cristian Rodríguez, and Luis Suárez.

I especially loved seeing Cavani celebrate that first goal of the match by going to hug the coaching staff on the sidelines, visibly showing support for their management of the team; in a world quick to criticize and be disloyal, he was a good example to my Little People...

We went on to win the match with 4 to 0! From our vantage point, right behind the opponent’s net during the second half, we got to see Cavani’s second goal up close!

SO thankful!
