Austin and the UMDM Rockets!

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?

OMG! That's so impressive! I'm sure Malayna couldn't even stand on the ice, never mind skate like that. WTG, Austin!!

Hello covnitkepr1

Sheila - Thank you so much!!!! He's done so well. A year ago Austin really couldn't stand out there, it was disastrous. Maybe when she's a little older you guys can try.

Thanks Ellen & Suzanne!! We are loving the hockey and I don't sing Joe's praises enough on this deal. It's so tough sometimes.

WOW! That is so amazing. Go Austin! I cannot wait to see photos and videos from his upcoming games. I can't wait to show Emma this because she loves hockey.

Way to go Aus! Dawn, just to see Austin out there on the ice makes my heart melt. He has been so blessed to have you and Joe as his parents. You guys go to the end of the world to do what is best for him (and of course Tommy and Ashley). So inspiring. I can't imagine how hard it must be to leave that early and get him there when he needs. You two are awesome!

Thanks Amy - We are so excited for the weekend.

Thanks Renee - Your words were just so kind, that means a lot to me. You just do what you gotta do you know.

Quick questions....when did Austin start ice skating? And how long till you saw improvements? We signed Sam up for lessons, but he is still just walking and very slow. He has a real hard time standing back up so he doesn't want to fall, we tell him to take "risks" but he doesn't want to get hurt. Any suggestions?

Dawn said...

Austin started last January. It was a horrible start but he finally started to get better after about 6 weeks it seems. He like Sam did not like falling at all and would kind of flip out about it. Falling doesn't seem to be as big of an issue now but when he does fall he does invoke the drama often still. We're working on it! How cool that Sam is learning to skate. Hope he keeps up with it.
