I Have a Grandson, Too!

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.

11 years ago and hopefully, the warranty is good for a long and healthy life.

@DianneN Usually from about 13 years on they get kind of particular, may run rough for a few years but it usually sorts itself out in the long run.

@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.

Thanks so much, Hanni. The weather was warm and lovely, but I had to wear a parka inside the arena. The ice rink chills the air unbearably. Otherwise, we had a wonderful and exciting time together.

@DianneN I think I understand. They have to keep it cold so the ice will not melt. Am I correct there? You are welcome. Glad you had a wonderful time. So had to be cut short for a Shiva call. They are always very hard.

@Hannihar You are right on all counts. We paid our respects to the family with a Shiva call. As you know, good trumps bad in our religion. The good must go on.

I don’t know much about hockey but I do know the goalie is an important part of the team. He must be talented.

I don’t know much about hockey either, but I know he’s crazy about being a goalie. He practices, goes to goalie camps, and has private lessons. He’s been interested since he was 2 years old. Thanks!

Thanks! It’s been so long since they have allowed anyone into the rinks besides the kids and coaches. Parents, too.

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.

I thought ice skating was easier as a kid, but still had my share of falls. I liked roller skating on my sidewalk better than on those slippery rinks. You will never catch me on either these days.

@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.

That's wonderful he took his team to a 5-0 shutout. Awesome! I love the picture. You're a proud grammy who would do anything for her grandchildren even if it meant bringing the parka and mittens.

His hair has been cut drastically. 7” gone. He likes the Korean way of wearing his hair now. You must be more familiar with it than I am.

I know very well that you also have a grandson. You write more about the Ice Princess, but you also wrote about her brother too. They seem to love the cold.
