Girls Hockey Day

Enjoyed Girls Hockey Day with several players from the area. We started the day with off-ice training at the Ninja Obstacle Academy, headed to the Huntsville Iceplex for some skills training and a scrimmage, then wrapped up the event with the Huntsville Havoc hockey game. A lot of organizations were represented and helped to make this all possible - North Alabama Hockey Association, Southeastern Amateur Hockey Association, Total Package Hockey, Point Mallard Ducks, University of Alabama Chargers, Nashville Girls Hockey, and the Huntsville Havoc.

2016-17 Team White

Matthew was able to get permission to play up and help out Hannah's team this past season. It made for some great memories.  The kids had wonderful coaches. Coach Sawyer didn't yell, Coach Ortiz played for the Havoc, and Coach Trimble saw Hannah understood the game so was able to impart his hockey wisdom to her.

My favorite memory is Matthew assisting Hannah for a goal but watching the two of them on the same line was pretty amazing also. All in all, this was my favorite hockey since Matthew started 6 years ago.

Spring Break

Spring Break is here and we are slugs. Matthew has a cold, it is really cold outside (little snowflakes have been floating down the last few days), and we have been sitting by the fire. It is a nice break...pajamas until noon...I have read a is delightful.

We ramp back up on Friday with hockey in Nashville. But this break is nice...I had ideas of working in the yard, scrubbing baseboards, etc. Those plans went out the window when I couldn't open the windows due to the frigid air that comes tearing through when just a door is opened. I am reminded of all the big plans I had as a kid growing up in CA....hours of laying in the sun...turned into huddled up in a blanket...the weather always turned cold during Spring Break...and so it still does.

I will make a cup of tea...cuddle with my kids and savor the lack of plans for the day.

I am not sure where the time day it is January, the next it is March...that being said, I cannot remember much of what we have been up to...I do have pictures...some I stole from the kids' snapchats to me...I am going to post and hopefully, I will have some time to actually write something this weekend...
