First Game For OLU White ’07

Let me start off with this tidbit. Bastien told me this morning that he did some research and the Livonia Knights (his first opponent of the season) start their games by coming out on the ice riding their sticks like horses and using them like swords. He said this so convincingly I completely believed him. People, this was made up nonsense. And I’ve been laughing about it all day long.

I’m sorry to report we lost 6-3. Bastien (#71) played very timidly for the few short shifts he was out there. But it was super exciting and action-packed overall. These teams have a ton of heart. And Bastien got an assist for the last goal right before the buzzer. That is the second best way to end any game and I’m so happy for him.

As soon as we got home he got out his whiteboard and wrote “Improve” at the top. His first goal appears to be “Jam it into the net”. I think we can expect a huge season of growth ahead.

Smile everybody, it’s Tuesday. Remember when that meant wings  were a quarter? Or kids eat free? Or tacos were definitely in your future? Seriously, why is Tuesday so big in the food industry? Anyway, we hope you embrace Tuesday like it’s the new Friday. We plan on celebrating by trying our local fitness trail. And eating a Pop Tart (we have a long-standing Pop Tart Tuesday; true story). And taking a horse lesson. All random I know. But nonetheless whatever would we do without Tuesdays?

This is Not About My Lavender Crop

Which was so much sweeter than my neighbor’s watermelon crop. Because did you know a watermelon on the counter can spontaneously spring a leak? And do you even know how much sticky water is inside a watermelon? Let’s just say we were REALLY bummed that there were autographed photos on the counter. Or beloved stuffed animals. Or freaking anything really. Apparently our house is fully under nature’s attack this month. UNCLE!!!
