 "a portrait of, and occasionally a quote from my children, once a week, every week, in 2015"

Jackson: He found out on Thursday that he'd be AP'd for the Rep hockey team and to put it mildly, he was crushed. I feel awful for him as he tried so hard and really, really wanted to make it on the team this year. It's always stressful to try out but this year it seemed way more high pressure. There was lots of tough competition and as ever, the selection process is very political. I believe being AP'd is still pretty great as he can still practice with the team and possible play a game or two but he wants more. I'm proud of him for trying however it's not what he wants to hear right now. He'll get through it and be a better player when the season ends with all the ice time he'll be getting. AP'd means rep and house practices at least 4 times per week. Hopefully he can rock house and show the rep team up with his skills.

Lily: Grade 5 means more French and she is loving it. One of her very best friends goes to the French Immersion school in town and Lily is always asking her to teach her words. She's thrilled to be learning in class so that she can speak more on her own. Her big dream is to head to Paris after she graduates for an extended period. I hope it happens for you my girl.
