This was the scene outside of our front window this morning. It’s a little dark – but it’s still a little dark when we leave in the morning these days. The girls broke out into a happy dance the moment that they heard on the radio that school was cancelled for the day. They headed off to their Nan’s house for a day of early Christmas shopping. I still had to go to work.
And, because this is my spot to post family related news, here is a picture and short write-up about the tall hormonal kid’s recent hockey tournament in Ottawa. I’m impressed with how good 12-14 year old girl’s hockey is. It was an enjoyable weekend of hockey and getting to know the other team members and parents. Another sure sign that winter is starting in Canada.
Gloucester-Cumberland “Kickin’ Ice in the Capital” Tournament
Three regulation periods and an overtime period was not enough to decide the final game of the Bantam House League Division Gloucester Cumberland “Kickin’ Ice in the Capital” Tournament. The Ice Wolves Bantam Gold Team went undefeated in regulation and semi-final play to earn a berth in the finals. The team dominated play through all three periods of play and overtime and just could not find the back of the net. The game was finally decided in a shoot-out; the 4th shooter from the Russell Coyotes scored the winner. The Ice Wolves proved to be a strong force at the tournament allowing only 5 goals against in 5 games, while combining for a total of 16 Goals for. Through injuries, sickness and players missing in certain games, the girls banded together to provide some exciting Hockey, against some strong opponents. All in all their time spent in the Capital was an excellent bonding and Team experience. Congratulations Girls on being the Bantam House League Tournament Finalists.
