Hockey Season Has Begun....

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!

Yay for Jaxon! Coming from the South, I know absolutely nothing about hockey. But it sounds like he is doing great! Congrats!

Very cool Jaxon! I hope it works out for him to move up for the challenge! Plus it makes all his hard work pay off. =)

Heather said...

That is too funny about Heather. Such a small world huh? She is good friends with my friend Tanya and we've met a few times. We're all trying to get a GNO lined up. Which with the Holidays is almost impossible. Cooper's met Caleb too. She's so easy to talk to and the conversation just flowed on saturday. Love Jaxon's hockey pics. Hope it all works out for Jaxon. Is Erik coaching too?

Very cute!!!! I was just wondering why hockey season starts so late there? We start practices in August and our first games are in September! He sounds like an awesome player! I just bought my son this shirt that says" Life is hard, but HOCKEY is harder!"

7 goals!! I would say he needs to be moved up! Geeze he rocks!! :o) Oh and I think it is cute when people ask if "those are your real eyes". I always want someone to reply, "nope, they're glass. I'm blind as a bat!" tee hee
