Celebratory Hockey

Celebratory Hockey

The Pits: None. The Peaks: I worked on sanding the wood that I cut yesterday. Hector got a new basketball goal, so the boys celebrated this fact by playing hockey in his driveway. We took a family trip to Dick’s Sporting Goods so the boys could buy a new football to replace the one that… Read more »
