Brayden finished his first season on the Mites Travel Hockey Team as of this weekend. Saturday's game was a loss ... but it was good to end the season with something to work towards into the new season in the fall and a little humbleness.
LAST weekend however was a different story!
We were in Wisconsin and NOBODY scored against our team ... nobody. In all three games. (And I did really feel sorry for those other teams. They even stopped keeping score after 0-7 thankfully) And Brayden got not just one ... or two ... but THREE hat tricks! (two in one game.)
**For those of you who don't follow hockey, a hat trick is when one player gets 3 goals in one game.**
yes ... he had nine points last weekend!
AND they were giving out patches for hat tricks ... how cool is that? Very cool for a boy of 6. I didn't even know they had patches for that and I don't think they have at any other tournament. So that was a lucky thing that the two events happened at the same time.
So, here's my Sunday Snapshot of our sweet, mischievous boy (don't you think his lost tooth fits the photo SO well!) and also to our very hockey-weary family. Because although we do enjoy hockey, it takes just as much, if not MORE patience and discipline for these guys:
who go to every practice (2-3 a week)
and wonder when it will ever be THEIR turn
To do this:
And be a part of this:
Way to go guys!
