POD: Preparing Valentines


Violet loves to do crafts, so much so that the thought of store-bought Valentines was unthinkable. So last night her and Mommy got started on making 22 Cards for her classmates and teacher.

It’s only 2 steps:

  1. Cut out hearts and add Glitter Glue,
  2. Write the classmates names and decorate the cards

Step one was completed last night with Mommy, tonight Nan or I will complete Step 2 with her.

POD: Hockey Skills


After a weekend filled with hockey, it’s time to start the weeks hockey activity. It’s really not much, just a couple nights of practice. So for my Monday Picture of the day I thought these shots of Violet working on her hockey Skills would be good..

POD: Hot Chocolate with Violet


Today after Violet’s 2 hour game of Scrimmage at hockey I thought she deserved a reward. So off to Tim Hortons we went for a Hot Chocolate and moffin. It amused me how happy she was when she realized that her hot chocolate had

POD: Pre-game instructions


It’s the weekend and that means hockey for our little family. So for this picture of the day we have Jacob kneeling on the ice listening to his coach before last night game.

POD: Taekwondo


Friday nights are Taekwondo night for the kids, so I thought a picture of them during class would make a great Picture of the day. Of course since thier last belt testing they are in different classes, so this one I took of Jacob during Violet class will have to do.

POD: Listening to the Coaches


Another day another hockey practice. This time we have a picture of Violet listening to her coaches during her DS practice.

POD: Racing down the Ice


Last night was Violet’s practice night, and I captured this picture of her as she started down the ice. Of course she was lagging a bit behind the other girls because instead of watching the coach and waiting for her to blow the whistle she was chatting with her teammate. I’m proud to say she wasn’t the last one to the other side of the rink either.

POD: Celebrating at the Bench


Sunday is Violet’s hockey day, so I chose this picture of her celebrating her Game Winning goal from the bench during her game. I love watching her play, she gives it her all every time she heads out on the ice. As long as she keeps working at it, there is no limit to what she can do.

POD: Watching hockey


Today we headed to dinner with Nana and Papa,  while there I captured this this picture of Violet as she watched the leafs game.  It was great to see her interest,  though at home she never wants to sit and watch with me.  Of course as a father I question if raising her a leaf fan is really the best thing for her.  Can I really set her up for a life filled with  that kind of disappointment.

POD: A Foggy Night


Tonight when I got home from the  kids evening activities I headed out with Ruby for our evening walk. I was surprised by how foggy it was. I just had to try to capture it.
