Well, we had a little excitement over the weekend. . .we had some snow! It had been sunny but chilly when we went to the Ice House on Saturday for Aidan's skills class and then Mini Mites. During the two and half hours we were there I could see that it was getting steadily darker and darker. By the time we came out, it was raining really hard and the temperature was in the low forties. We drove home and by the time we got to Goose Creek, about half way, it was rain and snow mixed. Back in Leesburg, it was all snow and it was accumulating on the grass and parked cars. Our friends who were coming for pizza and Wii cancelled (the live up across from Mt. Weather) and the roads, by then, were getting icy. So, we went out for a quick bite and then came home and watched Miracle (again!). It was a nice quiet evening.
We were sorry to have missed the Caps shut out win over Montreal, but we did get to watch Aidan win several face offs against boys in the 7-9 year old range in his skills class and then he scored a couple of times during Mini Mites!!! Woo Hoo!!! Now to work on his power turns some more. . .
Aidan has decided to have his birthday party at the Ice House again--totally his choice!! But, we're going to limit the numbers to 12 boys this year. Last years 25 was a bit much--space, noise and expense! But we still have a couple of months to get the numbers nailed down.
Yesterday, one of Aidan's school friends came over for a play date. The boys seemed to have a great time. And because he actually lives in our neighborhood, we'll be able to go to the pool together this summer! Yeah!! I'm so glad Aidan has such a good friend and I'm hoping we'll be able to get the boys together more.
We really have nothing going on in the near future. Just hanging out, working, going to school and hockey. Nothing exciting at all. I need to remedy that! But, in the meantime, here are some pictures from the Monster Jam that Pat and Aidan went to last week!
And so, we are now officially in the search of fun things to do!
PS My mom seems to be doing pretty good following her hip replacement surgery. She went home on Saturday and has been moving about, with a walker, pretty well. She even went to the grocery store yesterday with my sister! Amy will be there until Wednesday and mom should be able to do more, by then, on her own.
