Dance No More

I am not sure if I posted about KJ being in dance but he has been in ballet and tap dance with his sisters since September. Both Jon and I hesitated to put him in dance but he insisted that he wanted to dance so we signed him up.
Since that time K has really developed a love for sports, football, hockey, soccer, and his biggest love is baseball. He is so into sports that he requests to watch Sports Center when he wakes up in the morning. He knows exactly what teams he cheers for and just yesterday when his daddy put on a shirt for a team he does not cheer for he tapped Jon in the stomach and said, "I don't cheer for that team daddy!"
So a few weeks ago when K announced that he wanted to play hockey, Jon looked into it. There is a program through our local ice rink that has a hockey fast track. Kids can start when they don't even know how to skate. Jon called and there was an opening so this morning, Uncle T and I took K over for his first lesson. Jon had taken him to the used sports store and outfitted him with a helmet, shin guards and elbow pads and all of it cost $37. Thank goodness for the used sports store. Uncle T got K all suited up and I took him over and had him signed in. All the kids were stepping onto the ice and moving right along. I told the woman that I was not sure K could even stand on the ice so she helped him on and put him holding onto the side of the rink. He had a smile on his face the whole time. I think he was a little nervous at first but he really came a long way in his first 1 hour lesson. Uncle T was very proud of him. K is already excited about next week. Now if I could just get him to quit wearing his hockey helmet and shin guards around the house that would be good. He is also sleeping with a hockey puck every night. This is the puck that his daddy gave him and K is afraid if he does not sleep with it he will lose it.

You are very brave parents to do this it brings back memories of when Uncle T was that age, he really did like hockey and it was good for him but a lot of car trips for us.
