It's not that we don't love hockey or anything but it's almost a part time job keeping two kids in it (actually a part time job with money is sounding good right about now too). I can't imagine what it will be like when we have three kids in the sport (maybe they will start to like something less time consuming by then, ping pong anyone?). The girls on the other hand are over the moon about the season starting, particularly Noli who is finally old enough to join her big sister in the fun.
Before the season started we tried to justify quitting the league altogether and only going to shiny occasionally but their enthusiasm trumped our feelings once again. I do foresee some difficult choices about it all as it is clearly on a collision course with church activities. We have promised ourselves to not miss church on account of hockey so God hold me to that. For now we are doing are best to keep up with all the practises and games and clinics and tournaments (God help us,,). Seeing the older girls at the arena is always a good motivator for us to keep them in the sport. It really seems to give girls a sense of confidence. They know they are unique for playing such a "manly" sport.
