Tonight Violet had hockey training with TDHA at the CAA Centre. Usually they practice on the community rinks, but today they were on the big rink, where the Beast play. I think my picture might exaggerate how big the ice is. It was another great lesson for our hockey diva. If you are looking for… Continue reading POD: Training on the Big ICE
Tonight we have a silly picture. It seems Melissa was going through our sports equipment closet and found an hold hockey back. With Violet’s current bag having a broken zipper this could come in handy for any summer hockey camps. I think Violet likes it too.

Today was Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest, an event Violet had been looking forward to for weeks. A chance to skate with her hero Natalie Spooner.
