These are our neighborhood girls from across the street. They are indeed adorable. A few days ago three of the boys from the street knocked on the door, grins ear to ear. In darigia: "We are collecting money for a football."
Me: "You pirates! You have a football. You are outside my door kicking it every day!"
The grins get wider.
They had put a blue velvet drape with some sort of crest on it over the football box. That sort of initiative deserves a reward. We dug into our change and gave them money. I hang my head as it is my firm policy NOT to give the children candy or money, but if you had seen them you would have given them money too!
