Handing Down Lessons
The hockey coach said something important today between tournament games to the Pee Wee Major team: "Last year, the Schmids and Dane had to miss shifts and take less playing time, too. Now they are the older players, and we needed them to help us win in order to advance to the finals." It was just as good for my twins to hear as the younger boys who were listening! There were MANY games last year that Winger and Polar Bear were frustrated sitting out while Van and Finne were on the ice. It was even more maddening when Van didn't score--as that was the whole point. But now the '98s are the leaders. And they stepped it up--winning in the final two minutes by a score of 6-5. Tomorrow they will be in the championship in Oklahoma City.
