What a weekend! So many highs. And just a few lows. Even though our Renegades didn’t win the whole tournament, they played their little hearts out and delighted their fans through and through. Bastien was an absolute beast on the ice and was told so by many coaches and parents. I remain one proud hockey mom!
If you’ve never been to a hockey tournament before, I think these pics tell a representative story. I will say that Notre Dame felt incredibly swanky, compared to other tournament venues. But not all of our games were there, and perhaps it will make you laugh to know that one of them was another hour’s drive away in the definitive middle of a cornfield. What’s missing here are a few hours of conference room mini sticks and rambunctious pool action (you can just imagine that for yourself).
It was an absolute bonus to have aunts willing to come all this way and join us for a few fantastic breweries (NOT the kids favorite activity). But I would say we all came home happy. AND we did bring home a cup!
