BBQ time ! ! !

The weather is really heating up here. At 5pm it was 18C but it felt a lot warmer with the sun shining and no wind. It sure was nice to fire up the BBQ after 5 months waiting for that first steak !

Aiden Scores a Goal

Aiden played center on the second shift today. He was pretty good on the faceoffs and had 3 break-aways down the ice. He has pretty good acceleration to get a one step lead on the pack. On one of the break-aways he scored so he is one mighty happy player. He is number 66 with the name Cupelli on the back of the jersey. Click here to see more pics.

Friends Getting Together

Wenda got together with a friend from her days of teaching. Linda has a very positive outlook and a love of life that is certainly catchy. Too often we loose track with our friends and fellow workers after retirement. Today was special as old friends got together to share stories about work, grandkids and an optomism of a positive future. Click here for a couple more pics of Wenda and Linda.

True Grit

I like to watch both Quinten and Aiden play soccer to see their skills developing. Today, Aiden had a good game. He scored 2 of the 3 goals but was found near his own goaly most of the time, and talking to his teammates too much of the time. But then he goes into the mele and drives hard with the ball. Today he was passing more in front of the opponent net but there usually was not a good striker on hand to use that pass. He has great acceleration and fancy footwork when he gets in traffic. He is signing up for the rep league in soccer this summer where he will get additional coaching assistance. Click here to see more pics of the game. I must admit it is hard for me to shoot pics of Aiden playing because I am cheering and watching his moves when I should have the camera in front of my eye.

B&W Portraits of Grandkids

We were babysitting today so we thought we would update the picture frames of the grandkids. The pictures at their home are a year old so it is time for some new ones. Quinten is getting better slowly. He was out playing street hockey with me and he is taking some solid food. Lexy here is a doll and loves to have her picture taken. Click here to see the photos of Quinten and Aiden.

When in Lindsay, Aiden showed his great grandfather Ken (90 this summer) how he is learning to play the guitar, and of course Ken is showing Aiden how he too is learning to play guitar as ken just started a few months ago. You are never too old to learn. Click here to see Ken showing Aiden how to play.

Quinten Has His Tonsils Out

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday, Quint thought it would be quite the adventure to go to the hospital ... today after the operation he is easily upset. He has his mom and dad with him in the hospital room, but what he wanted was his brother Aiden, so his brother and sister came for a visit. Poor guy is tired, hungry and has an upset tummy. He was lookin a little white today. Hopefully he will be home tomorrow. Click here to see a few more pics.

Sunny Ontario

The temperature here in Newcastle, Ontario is in the teens this afternoon with bright sunshine and no wind. I am working on getting some of those sun's rays on my skin. It has been a very mild winter this year and it appears that spring has arrived early. I cannot remember a spring when it has been so mild.

Aiden Plays Soccer

Aiden loves to play soccer. He does not score all that often but he does dominate the play on the field. He is good at challenging for the ball, working the ball down field and helping his goalie. Here he is putting a little dazzle in the footwork before shooting on net. Click here to see a few more pics from the game.

The Shark

Quinten finished this round of indoor soccer today and Wenda took a couple pics on her cell phone. The other parents had been calling him "The Shark" because he had been eagerly persuing the ball during each game. We are pleased that his skills have really developed during this season.
