Back on the Ice

Hockey season is back, and it's been a bit sporadic and inconsistent because life is busier than usual. The season actually started two weeks ago, but mom and I have been working so much that we didn't have time to get him over to the rink. For all it's worth, many of the kids were still playing soccer so they weren't there anyway, so it wasn't all bad. In fact, we made it to one of the practices and I think 5 kids showed up. Last week thing began in earnest and once again we missed out on the entire week with N at camp and me working in the salt mines.

The kids had their first game this weekend and even that was a bit of a challenge in terms of time, mostly because it was Halloween and we had things to do in the morning. I had to go off and do poster boy work and then met up with mom and the kids to get our flu vaccines. We had lunch in the cafeteria and then it was to home to get ready for his game, which was a good one. N had a great game, they won the game pretty handily, and it felt good to be back. I don't think there was too much of an adjustment getting back on the ice.

After the game, we came home, the kids had some supper and I headed into work at the Inn. I have to say, work is becoming a tad bit overwhelming, and I'm not sure what to make of it, but more on that late. It worked out because the kids hooked up with their friends and had a blast (more on this later, as well), and our good friend HH volunteered to do all transporting, which was a huge help for all of us.

It really does take a village, doesn't it? Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Ken Tsoi for the pic.
