ice wolves gold march 2014tournamentice wolves

 

The tall hormonal kid’s hockey team – Ice Wolves Gold – won gold in the season championship game this past weekend. It’s been a great season for the tall kid; she made a lot of new friends, gained new skills, racked up points and even a goal (as a defenceman, they don’t come easy). Congratulations, tall kid.

I’d like to say that it is the end of the hockey season and back to normal, but there is still a short spring hockey session and then try-outs begin. But soon it will be over, probably right around the same time as the spring flowers are starting to poke through the ground.

a quiet Saturday in pictures

Today we have a quiet Saturday. That means no extra children running around, no hockey tournaments, no big projects on the go, just a normal everyday quiet Saturday. The girls have already been to the barn to clean the horse stalls, cleaned up their rooms and vacuumed, we’ve made a quick trip to the village to pick up a short list of groceries, and now we are taking a break. There is a hockey practice this afternoon, but that is a quick in and out and we will all be back around the dinner table together and make time for a movie and some popcorn afterwards.

You've got to love 10 year olds that are willing to make lunch. It might be just Kraft dinner, but it's a start.

We are getting closer to Christmas and we are nearly ready for it. Our Griswald Christmas tree is decorated and the Santa hat photo has been taken for the year.

Happy Holidays.
