the eric update - day 1688: tourney time!

we're definitely not into pushing odin into being aggressively competitive, but a few weeks ago we asked if he was interested in going to a hockey "tournament" and, of course, he said yes. and so, we went to the local arena hosting the tournament which was, thankfully, a tourney in the loosest sense of the word, no score was kept, everyone got a medal and it seemed like the intent was just for the kids to mix it up with other kids while having fun on a sunday afternoon.

even though he just barely grasps the mechanics and action of an actual hockey game ( totally age appropriate ) and is pretty much just interested in pushing a puck around towards the net, he had a grand time.

so did we, even moreso since we didn't run into any obnoxious hockey parents :-)

you can click on each image for a brief description.

here's a short video of odin accepting his medal.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
