A Chance to Make the Games Mean Something

Once again, my peaceful morning is compromised by the wakefulness of my oldest child.  But it's okay because his hockey try-outs are complete, and you guys, he made the team of his dreams.

Last year, he was crushed and there was sadness.

In the grand scheme of things, that was a valuable life experience, and I'm glad that he had it.  He overcame his disappointment and worked super hard to become better at hockey.

This year, however, I wanted him to have the experience of working his butt off and having it pay off.  It's so much more fun in this moment, with the jumping around and the delight.
