Springbok Supporter

On Saturday we took the bus to Suncorp Stadium to watch the Australian Wallabies wallop the "number 1" rugby team, the South African Springboks in the Tri Nations Tournament. Sophia was so excited to go to her first rugby match with her dad, she made a sign (unprompted) to wave in the stands. So in case you are wondering, she wrote hieroglyphics. On the left is her dad, the fan. That's a Springbok in the middle. "#1" on the right. And of course, the artist's signature. As South Africa trailed behind, the sign was stuffed into the backpack and new allegiances were made. We are truly becoming a Tri Nations household: Carl/Springbok; Sophia/Wallabies (as long as they are winning); Me/All Blacks (in lieu of America and the haka).
