Worn out birthday boy!

Someone else had a birthday this past weekend, seven days after his older brother. After the traditional birthday breakfast out with mom and dad alone, he donned his new goalie pads, trapper and blocker and wanted to play hockey right away. Our birthday children are exempt from chores on their special day, but unfortunately, duty called around the house for the others to complete theirs before playing.

With many sticks around to grab hold of and use to shoot on this goalie in the net, he saved shots, grabbed the balls bouncing at him and delighted in his abilities for this new position. When all was said and done, he was one tired boy!

"What a great birthday!"; he said
