first day of the waupaca “super squirt” tournament.

first day of the waupaca "super squirt" tournament. I.

odin’s team lost their first game against a milwaukee area team, but won the second against a team I can’t remember the name of! it was one of the best games i’ve seen them play in part because they game back from being down 6-4 to winning 7-10.

tomorrow they’ll play against appleton for 3rd place trophy!

38/365.  heading to state hockey championships!

odin’s hockey team has best record in their league and now they’re headed to state championships after beating sparta 7-2 in “playdowns”. here’s a nice shot of one of the viroqua thunder players, after receiving well placed pass from the player in the background, getting the puck past two defenders to score a goal. in the photo, the puck is juuuuuust getting up and over the goalie’s stick.

that’s odin standing in the top left corner playing defense :-)

waaaaay down the hill on the right is louise hemstead, organic valley’s chief operating officer. i can’t believe i missed getting a photo of her jumping on a sled and ripping down the hill. fun time with great people in a lovely setting. i haven’t sledded on a hill this big since I was a kid at my grandparent’s home in jonesboro, maine.

16/365. music night.

16 year old me would be mortified to learn 42 year old me gets together with a group of adults and their children to play music and sing songs. all jokes about me singing “if i only had a brain” will be sent to /dev/null.

we’ve been doing it for years. turns out it’s good, clean fun. the kids enjoy it and it’s a great excuse for me to challenge my inner hermit.
