They shoot, they score!

Both fighting a cough that doesn't want to go away, Ben and David were terrific today in their games. Nicole's parents were there to see both games, which was a nice treat for the boys and for them.

David, playing soccer, started things off scoring his team's only goal in a 1-1 tie. He came very close to getting a second goal and also played great defense. He's got amazing speed and is very competitive out there -- backs down from no one!

Then Ben, playing hockey, scored his first goal of the season! He was incredibly excited, as there are some other kids on his team who have been playing longer than him and have more developed skills. Ben really is getting better from week to week. He's been very good at keeping the puck in his team's offensive zone and driving to the net. His team won 9-0!

The boys tell me that it's OK if I don't score a goal in my hockey game tonight, but I'm hoping for a family hat trick!

Hi Ben!

Wow! We just read that your hockey team won 9 to zero! That is awesome!
We also heard you scored your first goal of the season, and we know that it is just the first of many more to come!
Your team is very lucky to have you, for sure!
It sounds like your brother had a great soccer game as well, so sports must run in your family. :-)
We hope you have a great week, and good luck to your team this season Ben!

Take care,

Holly & Kristy
