Planning Ahead ...

Jacob plays hockey on a really good team. It's great because all of the kids contribute and get along, and there isn't really a 'superstar' on the team. Jason is also a coach, which is pretty great for both of them.

Anyways, their team wins. A lot. This is great for them except that they have only tasted defeat once this season and that sometimes allows their egos to grow a little bit. Example? Playing "We Are The Champions" as a warm-up song. Oooookay.

So yesterday when we were on our way home from a tournament* I said to Jacob that it was so exciting. His response? "Ya I'm so excited! I made room on my shelf for this trophy last week!"

*Jake got a hat trick, MVP, and ten points! Such a change from last year, when he was by far the needs-improvement-player on the team.

Good for him! How cute!!
It's like every Canadian parents dream...
I am both excited and a bit worried about when Indie actually starts an activity with a schedule, commitments and events we can watch (other than school). It's so weird when kids have lives!
