Blue line back, red line back, blue line back. Again! Again! Again! Over and over and over. Those boys were some kind of tuckered out when they came off the ice! But they were listening and really paying attention to him.
But, in a good way.
Yesterday, the boys played a team in Odenton, Maryland. It's an hour and a half drive from here. I always have to think about that because it just kills me to drive three hours round trip for an hour game.
We arrived an hour early, as requested. Our boys did their pre-game warm up and then came out to watch a little football on TV. Actually, someones cell phone. . .
They were very cute.
But, I don't mind telling you, this mama was some kind of nervous! I kept pacing and I was fidgety. One of the other moms is a physical therapist and she offered me a message to help calm me! She has an older boy on this club so she's been here before.
Finally, the boys went in for their pre-game talk with the coach. And then they took the ice. Their warm up drills looked good. . .
Don't you love our new goalie???? He's huge!!! He's going to be an awesome addition to our team!!!
After that, the flood gates opened, and our boys were on a rampage. The final score was 15-0. Aidan did score a second goal and came off the ice smiling like crazy.
This is right after the final buzzer. Our goalie had left the net and the puck went in. Our boys stormed the ref to be sure it didn't count. It didn't!!
Aidan was so happy, he waved up at me! I was so proud of him!!!
Today, the coach emailed telling everyone he wan'ts to work with the A2 team alone on Tuesday and the A1 team alone on Thursday this week. They all will also work on Wednesday as usual. This means one less practice this week, but more individualized coaching on the one day for each team. When I read the message to Aidan, he gave me a frowny face and said, "But I like practice!" Okay then. His coach has not worked him too hard. Yet!
Have a great week!
