I Have a Grandson, Too!
May 3, 2021 3:20pm CST
I know I’m always writing about my Ice Princess (my granddaughter), but I have a grandson, too. He’s her brother and just as sports minded, too. My older son has been spending long weekends with him in hotels and ice hockey arenas the last two weekends. This will continue until June. That’s one reason hubs and I flew to Chicago on Thursday. He was in a championship round as goalie and led his team to a 5-0 shutout! We were so happy to have been there and so proud of his skills. Why do my grandkids love such cold sports? I froze to death for each and every game including practices! Yes, I brought my down parka and mittens.

@DianneN I know you have mentioned him too and things he does. I bet you are so proud of him and I bet it meant a lot to him that you were there. I thought by now the weather would be better there but since you had to wear a parka I guess not.

I always admire figure skaters and ice hockey players because they have such perfect balance unlike I do. When I was a kid, I really tried to ice skate and roller skate but I have no balance and could never stay on my feet.

@DianneN a little frost bite is not the end of the world as they say it takes a village to raise children and you are part of the village and i know that you are proud to be there grandmother no matter whats sports they do or whatever they accomplish you will be there with bells on lol. Freezing cold and all you do what is necessary for the ones you love.
