Hockey Camp Clips

Hi Everyone!

Well Kolt's hockey camp has come to an end. It was fun - he really enjoyed it. Kolt has found a new friend. He absolutely ADORES coach Jason. We had Jason and Sabrina and kids out to the farm for a fire after the last night of the camp. It didn't take long before Kolt climbed up on Jason's knee and made himself right at home! For those of you who know Kolt well, this is a little unorthodox. Lately, he has been coming more out of his shell, but mostly, he sticks pretty close to us. It's pretty neat to have such a great coach, that your kids like to hang out with them. On the other hand, I hope crawling on the coach's knee isn't something he does forever :o)

Here is a clip of the scrimmage they played at the end. Jason very kindly let Jake come on the ice also. In this clip, it's mostly Kolt, but at the end you'll see Kolt trip Jake and then they both fall down. It's pretty funny...

Kolt is doing very well. I'm so proud of him. He told me after the 3rd night of the camp, that Jake hit him in the head as hard as he could, and he didn't every cry.
If you know Jake, you'll know it was an accident, but it could easily have happened in the heat of the game. If you know Kolt, it would have been very hard for him to not take it personally and hold it against Jake for at least a couple of hours. It was a big step for him to carry on and not cry. What a big boy!

Jake's hockey camp goes until the end of August on Tuesday's and Thursday's, then we are done hockey until about October (WOW, a whole month break - what will we do with ourselves???).

Exciting news for us this week: I booked our plane tickets to Hawaii!! We leave October 20 and come home the 28th. I'm sooo looking forward to that! That's all for now!
