Where are we today ?
This morning we are having a spring rain, temps just above freezing so helping to remove the snow and wash away some of the winter dirt. Soon the grass will be growing trees budding and flower beginning to bloom.
At 9 am in Plattsville Grandson number 4 was to have what I heard a fun hockey game, tournaments over so this looks like one more kick at the cat. This is very different than what we have seen before.
Two mixed teams on the ice for 45 minutes. Non stop playing. Only One face off and every 2 minutes a horn blows, they stop where they are leave the puck and change shifts on the fly. His team had 4 players per shift and the other team 5 players per shift. These kids had nonstop fun and so did we. It was a very fast paced 45 minutes, no penalties, no whistles, after a goal was scored they carried on.

Next home at noon had a quick lunch and Suzie took her Dad to visit her mom. I ran a few a errands while the house was shown again at 1 o'clock. Back here unpack stuff and check supper going in our the cooker. Then when Suzie got back from Kitchener at 4:30 headed back to Plattsville to watch Daughter number 2 on the ice!
Now this is a very special event for us. From when she was 5 yrs old to12 years old figure she skated, practices and competitions, costumes and many medals, spend a few years in arenas with her back then. We have not seen her skate since that time as she wanted to participate different sports, basketball, volley ball etc... That was 18 years ago... seems like yesterday.
She has never skated on hockey skates and just picked some up last night, borrowed some hockey equipment and hit the ice to try out playing hockey. As she said it was on her bucket list, good for her.
