As any of my regular readers know, Jock and Stud are nuts about hockey. Any Christmas/birthday gifts, usually have to do with hockey. Any spending money they get, hockey items are purchased. Any video games Jock gets...you get the idea.
As you also may know, Princess decided to try hockey this season. She is usually a soccer player/ballerina/horseback rider. Her Dad really wanted her to try and part of her wanted to as well. She agonized for quite a while and would pull me aside every few days and tell me she was not sure she wanted to, would Daddy be upset if she didn't??
I told her that no, he wouldn't. She said she loved soccer and wanted to stay with that. She knew she could not do both. I reminded her that she had tried soccer but never tried hockey and she is young and has lots of time to try various different things, but we can't do it all at once. I reminded her that she enjoys skating when Daddy takes her and that she may find she really enjoys it. She finally opted to try hockey.
After her first practise, she was hooked. I may have mentioned how before one practise very early in the season, Jock was getting her ready in her equipment and she made some dramatic comment about not being able to live without hockey, what would her life possibly be like without it, and on and on.
Well, last night was her first GAME of the season. Up until now she has only had weekly practises. As things stand now, there is no going back and if you were to ask her about soccer she would probably not remember what that is! She LOVED playing in the game and has already asked a few times when her next game will be.
It was SO CUTE watching all these little ones skating all around and falling all over the place. The local news always comes out and films this levels first game and has a segment on the news, during the sports time. We remember Jock and his buddies being on TV then, it was SO CUTE. And already here his little sister gets her turn! Time flies. I cannot believe Jock has been playing for five years already and he started later than most.
Following are some photos from last night,for your viewing enjoyment:) She is in White (DUH!) #12 with hot pink laces and stick tape:)
As you can see, Jock did not appreciate his father taking pictures of him in the locker room getting ready for his practise. He is quite a picky little fart. Pre-teen, you know how it is:) Sorry it is sideways...ARG! Blogger did that for some reason and we cannot figure out how to fix it. It is right side up in our album here. Weird. I contemplated taking it out, but by then I had done the following pics of the other two boys...whatever.
Well, since we showed them I feel the need to show how Clown and Cryptic are doing. Here is Clown doing research on my computer here for a penguin that he was assigned in his Monday morning "Adventures Around the Globe" geography class. Also Cryptic doing his school work in his room and playing a video game in his new gaming chair her got for Christmas. As you can see by his jaw line, he is not caring for his eczema like he should be...*sigh*.
Ok, I need to get off here. Clown and Princess have finished all of their school work and are playing in a fort they made from blankets and an end table. They are waiting for me to get off of here and do some Math and maybe Science with them today.
Hope all is well with everyone out there!!
