    I am so happy for my children I could burst! My morning started at 5 for easy child's riding competition. She and her pony were fabulous! This kid has very little confidence but I watched it grow yesterday. She finished her day with Reserve Champion of her division.
    We had long enough to drop off her stuff and grab difficult child to take him to his hockey playoffs. He was steller letting in only 1 goal in two games. His team were the champions and difficult child got a shut-out for the final game.

    It just doesn't get any better than that. Both kids had great days, both felt not only great for themselves but for each other as they both were on the same high!

    The coolest for difficult child was getting to hold "the cup" over his head like the NHL Stanley cup. Way to cool!

    And I got pics!

    Definitely doing the happy dance here for you! :dance:

    How wonderful that both kids had such a great day - that's a rare day, to make an understatement!

    Congrats to you and to both champions!! :bravo:

    I was going to look at your pics, but I couldn't make the link work - might just be my lack of tech skills, though.

    Sending you all a high five!! :smile:

    You're right - the one with your son holding the cup over his head is priceless! That grin is amazing!
