first day of hockey.

He's been counting down the days all summer until 'kid hockey' starts. Him and dad got equipment over the weekend and he's taken it on and off no less then 100 times and all I've heard for past 3 days is "mom, 2 more sleeps until hockey!" and "after tomorrow, I get to play hockey!" and "Mom! Hit me with the hockey stick to see if it hurts" (after all equipment is put on).. needless to say he was pretty excited and grinned the entire time while on the ice. It was the cutest and I couldn't be more proud to see him having fun and doing something he clearly enjoys and is proud of himself for it. And in good ol 'proud mom' fashion, I took a few photos ;). -
