And Summer marches on..

As we enjoy the hot summer days and evenings, it occured to me today that the school holidays are nearly over. Only another three weeks to go! The girls have played their last soccer match of the summer and Ringuette started again today.

Maybe a mistake but I tried to do some gardening this weekend, […]

Trois Rivières “C” fest

Last weekend saw us head to Trois Rivières for our last Ringuette tournament of the season. Millie and Sophie have been playing in a fantastic team called the Novice “C” BK Penguins. Not only have they made some great friends, but there has been an awesome group of parents as well.

The view from […]

Winterlude in Ottawa

Last weekend we headed up to Ottawa for Winterlude – otherwise know as skating on the Rideau canal. They open up over 7km for you to skate along. So once we’d got ourselves organised, got to Ottawa, had lunch, we hit the ice. We skated over 8km (just over half way and back) on Friday […]

And the year marches on

I awoke this morning with great ideas for updating the blog, but they have all disappeared, so we’ll see where we go. November is a strange month, not really fall but not yet winter. The temperature goes up and down, this time fluctuating between +15 and -5°C, almost on a daily basis. The only constant […]

Our October

As Halloween draws near, and the pumpkins, ghosts and ghouls gather outside the houses, it’s time to reflect on a busy October. At the moment our lives continues to be dominated by Ringuette, racing to practises, games, coaching courses, power skating and goalie clinics. During the pre-season we lost every game but steadily got better, […]

Ringuette Pre-season

So we’re now in early October and Ringuette is in full swing. BKRA (Beaconsfield & Kirkland Ringuette Association) are trying to sort out the teams and in the meantime we’re playing in pre-season games in the Novice-C category. There are categories for age (so Novice is for ages 9 and 10) and then they break […]

A good start to summer

Well it’s been blue skies and over 25 degrees for the past couple of weeks, it’s been great. It is so nice driving alongside the lake each morning, makes you think that all’s well in the world. That said the lake is so much lower than normal it is starting to affect ships passing through […]

Ringuette team photo

Here’s a quick team photo for Millie and Sophie’s ‘Learn to skate & Riinguette’ group. I’m pleased to say they have really enjoyed it and have now signed up for another session until soccer starts in May.

Our Olympics

So ther Winter Olympics have finally arrived, to much excitement and expectation. It’s been a long time coming, but getting to see the Olympic flame makes it more real. In reality, the games would almost be closer to us if they were in Europe – such is the size of Canada! It does however seem […]
