so proud of odin for studying hard all summer, passing the tests and becoming a hockey ref! his first game was today reffing viroqua versus black river falls. His first job! as an added bonus he had first experience of having parents swear at him from the stands.
seriously, if you’re swearing at a 12 year old ref you really need to reevaluate your priorities. Happy the asshat parents didn’t phase odin and he’s very excited to keep reffing.
i started 2017 the same way I ended 2016 – with a double digit run. and a lingering chest cold. at this point I need a new years rationalization ( instead of a resolution ) for the crazy. taking suggestions for an ultramarathon.
odin playing with a new xbox game and listening to tunes on new christmas gift beats headphones is very much channeling the teenage years that are hurtling toward us.
sweet! santa brought odin detroit red wings tickets to an upcoming hockey game at joe louis arena! and multiple hockey practice jerseys.
“the joe” is going to be demolished in 2017 so santa was thinking ahead and thoughtful to get odin tickets before the historic arena’s demise!
perfect temperature! soon after taking this after getting nice and toasty, odin and i stepped out and jumped barefoot in the snowbank outside the sauna 🙂
preparing for the sauna, i was reminded of the time santa visited us in the sauna!
odin made you a pretty excellent snowman!
which means we’re done with the once and twice a week 35 mile trips we’ve been making all summer so odin can keep skating over the summer as our arena doesn’t have year round ice.
hometown ice is almost done which means the regular hockey season is about to begin! and with the start of the season comes longer trips to arenas all over wisconsin O_o
