Our Life in Pictures
It was a crazy sports weekend…5 hockey games, soccer practice, swim practice, a basketball game and a district swim meet. It all came to a screeching halt Sunday evening afternoon and just like that, the basketball, hockey and swim seasons are over. Anna went home with a 3rd in the back, 5th in the fly and 1st in the relay in her district (~15 teams) swim meet. Will’s team got 2nd in their hockey tournament. Interestingly enough, NONE of these events were in Medfield. But we did get to visit quite a few lovely towns in Eastern Mass – Charlestown, Norfolk, Wellesley, Bellingham, Milford, Malden.
Lacrosse, baseball and soccer start up in a few weeks…just about time to be outside.
Not much time to rest now that the fall activities have ended as all of the fun and games from the fall are moving indoors.
Hockey for Will has been underway for about 2 months now (apparently it’s not just a winter sport) but they’ve just started finally playing games. 2 games in and Will has a handful of goals and a game shirt with his name on the back of it.
Mom’s doing her best to keep Owen away from the cold rink but we’re afraid it’s inevitable.
As for Anna, when she’s not swimming, she’s playing indoor soccer and got her first taste of it on Friday. She started off the game in goal – something she DOES NOT LIKE – and proceeded to have her hands hidden in the jacket in protest
Spring finally made it to Boston. After birthday celebrations for mom and dad, we snuck in trips to the zoo, circus and science museum.

We won a trip to the Paw Sox on Friday so we combined that with a hotel stay and packed up too much stuff to spend 16 hours away from home. We sampled everything the Paw Sox had to offer and Anna even pulled off a cartwheel in the outfield picnic area
As if hockey wasn’t hard enough for a 5yr old, there’s mom, always challenging her kids with new training methods.TAGS: hockey
Earlier this week, Will’s street hockey team – the Portland Buckaroos – won the Gormley Cup. Will scored a handful of goals and even played goalie in the semi-finals. He was a little too stubborn to put on the glove, blocker and mask though. Little brother Owen (pre hand foot & mouth) was there at the finals to cheer him on.
Just your average night in bed for Will. Asleep with a hockey stick and the dog from the Grinch.
As for me, all I need is my sleep mask.
