Operation Christmas Child

I am off to Kitchener to help prepare shoe boxes filled with toys for children in 3rd world countries. It is a huge operation with hundreds of volunteers working for a few weeks each year on an assembly line  in a unused factory in Kitchener. The boxes are flown all over the world.


Rochester NY Tournament

We survived the 4 days in Rochester NY hockey tournament. With the whole team on the same floor, not only do the kids socialize in the halls, but the parents do as well. It was nice to go with the extended family on a trip. Lexi , Quinten and Aiden loved having both sets of grandparents in the rooms next door - shopping was not as great as we thought it would be. A thousand people lined up at Best Buy to get in on the sales - not me.

The Scientists

Aiden brought his micrscope kit to share with his great grandfather. On the way to Lindsay I had to lower Aiden by his heels over the bank of a pond so he could get a sample of pond water. The days are full of surprises for sure.


Clean Up In Aisle 3

Aiden had one of his best games last night as he was back playing left wing. He scored a beautiful goal after he shook off a few defenders to make his breakaway. In the above picture you can see defenders 6 and 34 converging on him, no it appears they are converging on each other as Aiden put on a bit of speed to get ahead of them on his way to the target. We  are of course extremely proud of his accomplishments and sportsmanlike play.
