Sam finally got to play goalie in the third game of his ball hockey league season. It started poorly as he let in the first shot on his net in the first twenty seconds of the game and the second shortly thereafter. But he settled down and collapsed on a few loose balls and our team managed to tie the game at 3-3 by halftime. Little guy then shut the door on the few shots that came his way in the second half and the Bulldogs pulled away for a 6-3 victory.

Bedtime ReadingThose Darned Squirrels
Old Man Fookwire is a grump who only likes to paint pictures of birds that visit his backyard. The problem is, they fly south every winter, leaving him sad and lonely. So he decides to get them to stay by putting up beautiful birdfeeders filled with seeds and berries. Unfortunately, the squirrels like the treats, too, and make a daring raid on the feeders. The conflict escalates-until the birds depart (as usual), and the squirrels come up with a plan that charms the old grump.
My take: How can you not like a book where you get to say Googlie Mooglie, raise your fist and yell “Those darned squirrels”?
