It has been so so hectic around here! Filling orders, designing new pieces, Dr. visits, and Walt is back to school!! We convinced him to join cross country! He has been running with Aaron all summer, and loves it! That kid can go from lazy bones to total machine in about 60 seconds!! It just takes the "right reasons"! What a crack up! I cannot tell you how much I love having him as a brother! It is just so much fun! It seems like just yesterday he was "Walty green socks"!! And now...he is our peer...our 4th partner in crime! Down for pizza or cupcake game in NYC anytime we call!
He signed up yesterday...(quite late!) The rest of the team has been running together since August! This is only his second year in this school as well! He transferred here to our town to be able to play hockey scholastically. He is awesome! (He was just featured in American Hockey magazine!) I pretty much cry every game!! So So excited and proud!! He is our baby brother. And we want to hold on to him for as long as we can!!
Today is his first practice with the team. I know he is really anxious to see what it is really like, if he is overthinking it?..underthinking?....I promise...it is allllll about THINKING with that kid!!! Those wheels are always turning!! lol! His first meet is Saturday (I think)...We are beyond excited! This is something totally new for our family! We are a hockey family! So my Dad is going to have to find some new "insane things" to yell!! Trust me...Walt will have a LARGE rooting section!! What a fun way to usher in Fall!! I'll keep you all posted!!
