Happy 2008 everyone! We survived our Christmas break and as I write this I am on the verge of getting back into the swing of things for this year. We are either going back to work or school depending on who you ask. Connor mentioned today that he was planning on being sick tomorrow as school shouldn’t start on Monday’s! (I like this kid’s attitude!!) He quickly said that he would be fine for Tuesday however.
I need to go to sleep or else tomorrow will be a nightmare for me. So with that in mind here are some of the major events from yesterday.
Carter now wants to skate!! yay. He has been very resistant about it starting last year during his lessons for some reason. However, with a little bribing (salt and vinegar chips … his favourite) he went with his Mom to Dovercourt and had a blast. It made me very happy as I know he is an amazing athlete. Here is a video of him skating around Dovercourt today when he went with me. We went in the morning before the rink got too bad with this super warm weather that we are to have this week.

I will send the family more videos of him jetting around the rink tomorrow. A momentous day for us as we were anxious on when he would start to skate. (As any red-blooded Canadian would be anxious …. yes we are hockey-mad here in Canada.)
Updates on others in the family? Connor is doing fine and has been great over the holiday. He is super excited about his Grammy and Grampy coming next week! His hockey game today was really cool as he skated really hard and got a goal on a true one-timer when he called for the puck right in front of the net. He said he put it top shelf but in fact it was the bottom of the net. Still an awesome goal.
Ok C3 … hmmm. Well sort of battling a cold lately. Runny nose, etc, etc. Not too miserable but enough to confirm that we won’t have another baby. He is now a power-walker. Ready to attack malls when he is 80 years old. Here is a hilarious video of him walking with a broom he found and then tries to put on Connor’s jersey.

More pictures tomorrow. Got to get to bed.
