We chose not to start him on any sports when he was in Kindergarten for several reasons:
- A full day of school is a big deal when you've been home with your mom all day every day. It's exhausting.
- Starting a sport at the same time you're getting homework for the first time is tough. You'll want to play sports instead of doing homework. We wanted to build good habits.
- Running all around town several days a week, plus games was not something we wanted to start last year. I've heard so many people complain about running their kid from one thing to the next. Not something I wanted to do at all!
But this year is different. He's almost 7 years old. The sport he's chosen is one his dad LOVES. He's learning how to have more self-confidence and he's learning how to become more nimble on his feet.
Last Saturday, my Buddy had his evaluations for Roller Hockey!!
He was a lot better than I expected. He got on those skates and took off! He looked at me and told me, "I loved it and I never want to quit!" So fun!
He is learning all kinds of things. It's so cool to see him learn. To see how is brain is taking in everything he's being taught. It doesn't matter who is teaching him, he is so ready and willing to learn.
We're excited about this season of hockey!
