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.

POD: Afternoon of Science

Today while mommy worked the kids and I sat down with Jacobs Microscope to see what we could see.

POD: Skating with the kids

Even though I didn’t really feel like doing anything, I knew that the kids didn’t want to have another day in the house, so I did something I don’t usually do, I laced up my skates and took the kids for a family skate. Jacob isn’t in the picture because he took the picture. It was a fun afternoon, perhaps we can do it again this winter.

POD: Ending the Tournament with a win

While Violet wasn’t 100% she was well enough to play. If I was honest, I don’t know how sick she’d have to be to be willing to miss a game. The game was another close one. The dolphins won 1-0 ending the tournament with a 2-1-1 record.

POD: Tournament Time

Today Violet’s DS Team laced up their first skates for the first Tournament of the hockey season. They were so excited to get out on the ice and see how they compared to the other teams. The day was started with a nail biter. It ended in a 1-1 tie, with the Dolphins tieing it up with 0.10 seconds left in the game. The second game was a 6-3 win for our Dolphins.


POD: Christmas Morning

Christmas morning is for the kids, so for my picture of the day I have some shots of the kids as they opened their presents.

POD: Christmas Eve Tradition

After an afternoon celebrating with my family, it was time to get down with our little family’s Christmas tradition, the First gifts of Christmas. Every year the kids know that they get to open one present on Christmas eve. They know that they’ll be PJs, but they look forward to it every year.
