And so it begins...

Fours years old and....look who is playing hockey!
All suited up and ready to go
Such a cute little Timbit.
He is still not sure of himself on his skates, so spend a lot of time on his knees and back.
Yep, that's him in the middle of the rink all by himself on his knees.
The coach soon came to see how he was doing, and he was not a happy camper.  His nose was running, and he couldn't wipe it with his gloves on and his mask in place.  He was a soggy, uncomfortable Timbit.
He got a pep talk from his coach, and got another lesson in how to get back on his feet once he had fallen.
Ahh, that's better.  Nose has been wiped, feet regained and he is ready to fly.
Took a shot at the glass.
More coaching in front of the net. 
While brother played, sister ran around the rink.  Up and down the stairs, and round and round and round.

We spent some time out in the warm lobby, and then headed back into the very cold rink area.

I had a good view from the top row...
..and from that vantage point was able to keep a close eye on sister too.
It was a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon.  We will go again for sure, but I will take something warm to sit on next time.  That rink sure is cold.
