playing his heart out

Much of our weekend was spent watching Abbott play in a hockey tournament; Sunday he played in THREE games. I felt tremendous pride in seeing him work so hard. Over the past week or so many things have started to 'click' for him with hockey, and he's starting to see that hard work pays off. Some of my most valuable life lessons have been learned via playing sports and working with a team.

I hope your week is off to a great start.

Super action photos of Abbott! Both my boys played hockey and Little League Baseball along with the other team sports via school.
My daughter was super active in sports too.

They all grew up nicely, if I do say so myself!

Watching the kids play hockey is so fun! and cold! I remember enjoying watching my nephew, Gabriele, play! Abbott is growing up so fast, he looks like a young man in his hockey garb!!! I bet he slept well on Sunday night after playing 3 games! xoxo

Go Abbott, go! Hockey's my favorite sport, I'll be looking for him on the NFL ice in about 15 years :-)
