day 4620: wait, what? it’s almost the end of the regular hockey season?!

day 4620:  wait, what? it’s almost the end of the regular hockey season?!

it’s hard to believe the regular hockey season is almost over with just a couple of games left for odin in his last year as a pee wee.

he’s a great player but if i’ve learned anything over the years – it’s hard to take a great photo of defenseman in action ( much easier to take photos of offense shooting pucks into the net than taking photos of defense running down pucks ) 😃

unfortunately they lost to dodgeville 3-6. there’s a good chance they’ll play them at the state championships in a few weeks so they’ll need to step up their game if they want to take home a trophy.

day 4571: The Ref.

day 4571:  The Ref.

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.

day 4495: “summer ice” is (finally) ending.

day 4495:  “summer ice” is (finally) ending.

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
