Sunday Afternoon At the Rink

It was a nice Sunday afternoon, so the kids and I headed to Pullar Stadium for the Soo Eagles game. The kids can sill ride their bikes (no snow..yet). We had a lot of fun as usual, and the kids got to play with their friend Sydney who we always run into at either the Eagle or Laker games.
At home the kids were playing around in their Halloween costumes and, being Dad, told them to put them away before they ruined them. They were good and did as they were told. They put on hockey jerseys for the game. We got there only to find out that kids could get on the ice during the first intermission if they had costumes on. Way to go, Dad. They were pretty easy on me, though. Wish I would have known that ahead of time.
Good hockey game as the Eagles beat Blind River 5-4 in a shoot-out. Halloween next weekend, so I don't think we'll make it to any games. More soon, though.

Great Time At Lake State Weekend

It's Great Lake State Weekend up here in the Soo, and, well, that really doesn't mean a whole lot because we live here. Papa and Nana came to visit yesterday, though, and after a fun day with them we capped it off with Laker Hockey. It was a good game as the Lakers won 5-4. All the horn blowing gave Lily a headache, though, so maybe I'll bring her some ear plugs next time. Trevor had fun, too, and they both got ice cream after the first period.
Papa and Nana spoiled the kids and bought them new coats and boots. Even Brian will be out in the snow this year. He was pretty fussy at dinner, but Momma took good care of him. More hockey for the amigos in a couple of weeks. Hopefully we'll get our camera working by then.

My Karate Kid

Lily has joined Kuk Sool Wan and is doing very well. Trevor tried it for a week, too, but decided to go with Cub Scouts instead. Lily is getting a lot of praise from her Master and seems to be grasping the concepts well. She's already learned a lot of moves, and can count in Korean. It will be fun to see where she goes with this and how far she can advance.
She has this twice a week, so lots of time for practice. Trevor and Brian usually accompany me when Lily is kicking around the gym.
