Unstructured time is the incubator of greatness. - Ken Dryden, hockey legend
Last night Abbott and Cal started spring hockey. Spring hockey consists of weekly three on three games, no practices. At the orientation after the game, the organizer said that this program had been set up because, given the climate in Seattle, our kids don't get free play time on ice as children growing up in colder climates do; that the program was designed to give kids unstructured time on ice with other kids. He proceeded to quote Ken Dryden as cited above. Exactly. Here's what our unstructured time at home has looked like lately.
