So this weekend was the 1st Hockey game for us. Many weeks of practices and I am PROUD to report that Jaxon had 7 (yes, I said 7) goals. Lets just say that dad and him have been doing a little incentive with a new hockey stick. Get at least 5 goals and you can play with your new stick. Get less than 5 and you are back to the old one that is splintered to heck!
There was a little drama in the beginning of the season because Jaxon was evaluated and chosen to be on A Mites again this year simply because of his skating which both Erik and I realized was our fault for not spending 3-4 hundred dollars on lessons (can you think of something more fun to spend that money on..I can).
Well, as it turns out we may have to petition the association because Jaxon knows the game really well. He is focused and guess what??? His skating has kicked in! So, after the 1st game we had several coaches tell us that he might need to be moved. Please say a prayer, because this is always a little hairy and it is not our intent to rock the boat. We just want Jaxon to be challenged at hockey like we expect him to be in school.
Here are a couple of pictures from the game. These are random shots. Not all of Jaxon but there are a couple of him as well.
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
