Austin is still playing hockey and doing quite well with it I should add. He is coming right along and has improved dramatically since we started back up in October. Next weekend he'll play in his first special hockey tournament. There are five teams coming in for it and we're looking forward to seeing him play in some real games. I'm sure he'll be a nervous wreck. Joe will tell you that the team is really starting to look like a team. They'll be doing line matching for sure which is good because the spectrum of our team is so huge. We have some really good players that can skate well and shoot well and some that are still really struggling just to stand up out there. That is Austin's biggest struggle is he needs help getting back up when he falls down or gets bumped over. I'm sure a coach will be there to assist him. Joe believes he is getting really close to being able to get up on his own.
Bless Joe's heart because when we haven't had to be somewhere else because of Tommy's hockey he has taken Austin down. I so appreciate not having to leave the house at 7:00 so he can be on the ice at 9:00. I have to give Joe kudos; Austin too. He sent me this video today and I was so impressed, Tommy even gave it an "oh my gosh" when he saw it. So proud! We're excited for next weekend. We'll be down in Frasier and Livonia - rinks we're already familiar with thanks to Tommy. Who's the travel hockey player now?
