It's very weird for me that my kids don't know a whole lot about hockey. As a Canadian, I grew up during the "Oilers Dynasty," knew every stat, kept up with players' lives both on and off the ice, and even kept a hockey scrapbook! Our kids got to go to their first hockey game a few nights ago. Grace's school gave away tickets to the students, and we were able to get tickets for a dollar each to see the Fresno Monsters play Fairbanks. We met up with Randy and their kids, and we also brought Charlotte along. We enjoyed the game (despite the Monsters losing), but what made the game memorable was how the girls didn't even make it through the first period before Grace and Charlotte took out their books and began reading. I thought this was just hilarious!
