Hello from Quebec

Hello stitching friends, I thought I would take a few minutes and post so that you knew that I was still around. I have been going, going, going...but it looks like after a little outdoor scrimmage the boys played this morning, I have the rest of the day to myself...which I might actually take a nap, do a little exercise and make time to stitch.
The picture to the left is one of my son's team (the San Jose Jr. Sharks PeeWee AA in white) and the other team they scrimmaged (the Cleveland Barons PeeWee AA in red). It was just a fun game without any score keeping. There was a referee there - who happened to be the son of the host family my son is staying with. My son and his teammates are enjoying their time so far...the best activity they have participated in so far has been the out door hockey opportunities, like this one today. California boys don't get this opportunity very often. Below is a photo of my son!

Yesterday, we didn't do too much with the boys - so having the day off I was able to sleep in and then join some of the other parents who made the trip up to Quebec for a little site seeing. We mainly checked out all the Winter Festival activities. However, after a few hours outside and just a few degrees above zero is very cold.

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day. It was nice to see my son and give him a little card and chocolate heart, but I do miss being with my DH on a holiday like this. For the second year in a row, we have been in 2 different places due to hockey tournaments. Last year he was in Colorado and I was in Arizona...this year, he is in Colorado again and I am up here in Quebec. Oh, well, I guess that is the way it goes when you have 2 kids in travel hockey!

Take care...and remember to Live, Love and Laugh often...and stitch on...Lisa

Hey Lisa! I've been thinking about yours boys schedule for hockey and was wondering about school! :) Do you homeschool? Or are they on a break? Or can they make up their work?

DH was in the Ukraine and I was in NC over Valentine's Day! Not too exciting! :)

Great to see that you are having a good time, although you look pretty busy.

Hope you can do some cross stitching every now and then ...

It is nice to read that you are having a good time, even if you are very busy.
Hope you can find some time to do some stitching!
Take Care.
