Did I mention?

It's hockey season. So far, 3 games played. 1-1-1. Beat Peoria U16A/AA, tied Team AZ Bantam AAA, lost to CAHA U16AA. All 3 good games. The kids are playing well together and seem to have bonded quite well, considering all the new kids this year. We have several 1993s who returned after a year of high school hockey too.

Not much planned for this season yet. Labor Day tourney here. Ice Breaker tourney here in Sept as well. Silver Stick in Dallas in October. Silver Stick will determine the rest of our season's plans.

Kyle seems to be liking it. He has a new linemate - Jared. They seem to like playing together (at least Kyle says they do) and seem to play well together. It's a change since last season he finished out the season playing with Steven, Eric & Josh. But so far so good. Kyle had a beautiful goal in the game against Peoria last Thursday and had some stellar shifts last night against CAHA.

Again, it's the start of the season. More to come!

school starts tomorrow. Summer has actually been pretty fun, and though we had the hottest July on record, June was nice and last night we sat out on the Swansons front patio all evening. So we can't complain about the weather this year. Not much anyway.

Hockey is back in almost full swing. Two practices a week. Tournament in a month. Lots of emails, lots of paperwork.

Ron has most of August off - vacation!

Kyle is NOT looking forward to schoolwork, but he is looking forward to seeing his friends tomorrow. I think even for kids, it's nice when the routine gets back to normal.

I am looking forward to cooler weather, running outside with my dogs, and wearing jeans. Okay, maybe I'm two months premature on all of those. It still is August here, and the a/c usually doesn't go off for good until October. But a girl can wish.
