The crazy day is done. We made it. Viv had a great soccer game, the Little Mermaid was awesome again (and HUGE props to the male lead that had to break scene to get sick and then came back to finish the play), and Bubs team lost to another A team but he played well and enjoyed himself. This Spring ice hockey season has been tough on the kids, there are A and C teams in the same division, so they get stomped one game and then have a good game the next. I do like that Bubs is playing more defense this season, that gives him a chance to see the whole game in front of him and will make him work on his skating a bit more (especially with the numerous odd-man rushes when playing an A team).
I really have to thank my son for being an awesome kid yesterday. With his mom with a migraine, he was forced to attend an extra performance of the play and an early soccer game of his sister’s too – this kid is a trooper. His attitude was great yesterday too. Good job, buddy.
How cool is this email I got from Bubs’ ice hockey coach yesterday? His coach made up named awards for each of the boys, and Bubs won the Zdeno Chara Award. This was sent out after the Shawnee Ice Hockey banquet (that we couldn’t attend due to the Little Mermaid performance last week…
VAN KAPEGHIAN JR
ZDENO CHARA AWARD (FASTEST SLAPSHOT RECORD 108.8 MPH) – VAN LOVES TAKING SLAPSHOTS DURING GAMES AND PRACTICES. I COACHED VAN IN FLYERS LTD TRAVEL AND HAVE SEEN HIM IMPROVE HIS GAME SO MUCH THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. PLAYED OFFENSE AND DEFENSE ~ EVEN NUMBER OF GOALS & ASSISTS, ACTUALLY HAD MORE PTS THAN WERE RECORDED IN POINTSTREAK (JERSEY ISSUE). MAY BE A FUTURE COACH AS HE ALWAYS SUGGESTED LINE CHANGES TO ME. WORKING ON HIS SLAPSHOT, CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HIM PERFECT IT. SCORED 2 GAME WINNING GOALS & HAD A HAT TRICK
Griff the Invisible – what a great movie. Incredibly original, sweet, romantic “super hero” movie.
Wreck-It Ralph – Bubs and I watched this together yesterday and both loved it. Lots of classic video game references and super funny.
- ‘SNL': All this week’s ‘Fox & Friends’ corrections – I love these.
- Johnny Marr: How Soon Is Now? – this was bad ass. One of my favorite guitarists.
