Well, Matthew's team didn't make it to the Semi-Finals as they lost their last round robin game on Sunday night. It was a heart breaker loss. They were tied all the way to the last minute of the game and then the other team scored. Matthew's team needed to win or tie in order to advance to the semis on Monday. Oh, well..."ya win some, ya lose some".
Since we didn't have a game on Monday, we planned for the team to do a little outdoor skating on a pond...something that you don't get to do in California. It was a little chilly...dropped from 12 degrees when they started skating around noon, to 6 degrees when they finished up, which was around 2:45pm. It was nice that the facility had a beautiful warming house, for the boys would skate for a while...until they couldn't feel their fingers...or cheeks...or ears...or toes and then they would come in and warm up....and then go back out.

Well, time to get caught up on the laundry and a few of the house hold chores. Until next time, take care and remember..
