POD: Lacrosse Sunday


Not even the sudden thunderstorm washing out her second game could put a damper on Miss V today. Her team won 5-2 and the teams Lacrosse bags came in. She was one happy girl.

POD: Victoria day Fireworks

Today was Victoria day so the neighborhood was alive with fireworks.

POD: Relaxing in the Grass

Today we have a picture of Ruby take a break from playing catch. She had a lovely time enjoying the summer-like weather in the sun.

POD: Broken, but healing

Today we had a follow-up with the fracture clinic and everything seems to be going ok. Her bone’s still aligned and the cast is in good shape. Best of all she’s been cleared to play in the first Lacrosse tournament this season.

POD: A special moment at HockeyFest

Today was Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest, an event Violet had been looking forward to for weeks. A chance to skate with her hero Natalie Spooner. When she broke her arm last week we were so worried that she’d miss it. I’m so glad that it turned out to be such a memorable day for my little Hockey Diva.

POD: Hockey Pillow

Today I thought I’d share the amazing end of season gift Violet got from her DS team this season.

POD: First play Again of the year

Today I found myself making an extra stop at Tim Hortons. I just couldn’t pass up an opportunity to roll up the rim.

POD: Furies Game

Today we headed to the CWHL Game to watch the Toronto Furies take on the Brampton Thunder. Violet’s favourite player, Natalie Spooner plays (Number 24) for the Furies and scored a hattrick. It wasn’t enough for the furries to defeat the Thunder, which was ok for Violet and her teammates because three of the Brampton players coach the girl’s hockey teams, and they came to play. It was a great game, ending 4-3 with Brampton scoring the winner in the final minute of the game.

POD: Hockey Drills

Tonight I thought I’d share something a little different. An animated GIF from Violet’s DS practice. When I watch this I can’t help be amazed at how much better she gets every time she steps on to the ice.

POD: First House League game of 2017

After a two week break from house league hockey Violets team hit the ice for their first game of 2017. It was a hard fought game with the Silver Stars falling 4-2. What impressed me was how hard Violet played. Going in to the corners for the puck and not giving up when she went for the net. She was rewarded for her effort with a beautiful goal on a rebound.
