Hockey Tournament

Well, we didn't come home with the trophy, but I did get lots of great hockey photos. We sat in seats right along the boards for every game, so Jay was nice and close. This is one of my favourites.

He is such a great goalie. I know, every parent says that about their 'super star' hockey player, but I think he is different. He is a very sportsman like player. He is very well liked by all his teammates. Although he is almost 15 years old he still looks for me in the stands and gives me a nod at every game. He takes the game very seriously, but manages to enjoy it at the same time. It is a very stressful position to play, and he handles it very well. What happens on the ice, stays on the ice. He comes out of the dressing room with a smile on his face after every game.

I am so proud of him. He doesn't always bring home the winning trophy, but he is #1 in my mind.

After all......isn't that the way it is supposed to be?


  1. Aww, sorry to hear about missing the 'trophy'.... but glad to know you got some family time in and some good photos to boot!:)

  2. sorry to hear he didnt win, beautiful photo though!

  3. being a goalie is a tough job, at times the game weighs on your shoulders, your son is an amazing kid for being able to keep it all in perpective.
