A new generation of hockey players is born
We had a lot of fun picking out skates, sticks and pads. I think I accidentally got two-left shooting sticks, but that may be a good thing as Ben does shoot left. I am not sure which way Sam will want to shoot, so we may be back at Big 5 tomorrow! I have a right-shooting stick for me, thank goodness! We called Uncle Doug on our way back home to get some pointers. He and Uncle Tim both played ice and roller hockey, so this seems like a family tradition!
The boys picked it up really quick. I thought I’d be a human crane, holding them up, but I wasn’t at all. Ben insisted on getting these Heely shoes with wheels in the heels. Turns out they were much harder than I think blades would be for him, so we may be back to Big 5 for those, too, tomorrow. Ha!
