We're on Vacation......

well almost!
We are just one pre-season hockey game away from hitting the road! We forgot to check with the coach when we scheduled our vacation, so we will be delaying our trip by a couple hours. When the coach called begging that he was willing to do just about anything if we could make the game..... I told him that I sure would like a red chicken coop! Doogie starts this season as a 5th year as a Mite player. It seems like just yesterday that he was just learning to skate. He was two years old when he took his first skating class. I can still remember the look on his face when the instructor asked him to sit on the ice so that she could teach him how to stand up. When he wouldn't sit on the ice she asked him why not, and he told her "Because I'm never going to fall!" For the most part he was right, and it's a rare occasion that he loses his skates from beneath himself. I'm sure once he advances to the age group that allows checking....that will all change. All Mom can ask, is that you try your best, and I will keep up my end of the bargain and take you half way round the world and back to play! Good Luck #18
