...for all the mums and dads who took their kids to our regional hockey carnival... and survived!!! What a day. No, let me re-phrase that. What a long, tantrum-filled, injury-plagued, sun-burning day! And that was just me! No, only joking! It was a good day for having fun and learning about the game. And besides the weather was really good.

Liam plays in the Mickey group (5-7 years) and Tahlia plays in the Modified group (under 9s). Other than that I can't tell you much more about the game. I'm learning about it as they do!!

Liam was up to play in the first game this morning. Each game had two, 10min halves. And I think that was enough for these, (mostly) five year olds, to handle.

He did really well. Proudly telling Tahlia that he now knows more about the game than she does. He has played longer. By one week. Therefore, that is why he scored a goal in his first game! Yay!!!

She promptly replied with a goal of her own, in her first game too! Yay!!!

I promise you, she wasn't the only kid out on the field. Although, sadly, her goal, was probably the last one scored for their team all day....But did I mention that the weather was fantastic.

Love the photos. Looks like the kids had a great time playing hockey, and glad they got a goal each. I can imagine how tired they must be tonight though. Thanks for sharing the photos.
Love Mum

Great photos Leanne!

You asked about whether it was Laura Child who wrote the "Charlie and Lola" books? They arent the same (I think) one is Child and the other is Childs

Close though!!
