What is black and white and whistles?

What is black and white and whistles?  Its Nolan reffing his first hockey game!  Not only did he play in two of his own games on Saturday, but he reffed two games that day.  And Colton played in two games as well- meaning, yes, we spent most of our weekend at the rink.  Yesterday each boy skated in one game, and Nolan reffed the last game of the night.  He took a class in October, then had to take a test.  Now he is on the rotation for reffing.  He gets paid per game and will get his first paycheck in a couple of weeks!  Nice!

Whistle ready for the call...

It was an exciting game that looked like it might be a blow out, but then the other team came back and it was close till the very end.

What better way to entertain a little brother, than to tell him to hop on your bag and you'll give him a ride! Could his smile be any bigger?

When it was time to hop off, big brother just eased the bag straight up and little man hopped off and hit the ground running.  I should have shot it in video because it was the funniest thing I'd seen in a long time.

  4. How exciting is that! And a great learning experience too. As the boys get older they can earn money reffing the games in HS.
