We don't even call winter WINTER.
At our house...we call it HOCKEY SEASON.
Annie, Bo, & Rocco all play
And it gets crazy!
The weekends get sooooo crazy!
Besides Annie's many weeknight practices,
our weekends can be anywhere from 4-7 games.
But just look at my boys...
8 is my number this year...since soon we will be a family of 8.
Today was Rocco's last day of the season.
It was my shift as Kel was with Bo at his game.
Do you have any idea how cute 5 year olds are
zooming around when they can barely see over the boards?
And at his game, he scored twice.
Sure maybe, both times, he plowed down
his own teammates right in front of the net,
stole the puck from them, and shot it in net.
I was proud anyway.
But that wasn't my favorite part.
My favorite part was that every time he fell down, scored a goal, or thought he was doing a cool move...
...he looked for me.
Even in the midst of all the chaos,
He would look up to the stands,
look me in the eyes & smile.
And of course my heart would swell & I'd smile right back.
I felt like the luckiest girl in the world.
