If You Really Want It...

I know everyone is not intrigued by what happens behind our house, but I knew the family would get a kick out of seeing this picture from yesterday afternoon. I had a picture of the kids playing hockey last week, but I thought this says a lot about their dedication and determination to play. Before they could play, they had to shovel off about four inches of snow on the ice. Their shovels are hard to see, but they're laying in the snow just behind their goal. That was a lot of shoveling. I couldn't get all of their homemade rink in the picture. I thought it was neat that they even brought along chairs, snacks, and spectators. It was about 25 degrees yesterday afternoon. Hey - that's a heat wave compared to the last week. There's a lesson there somewhere about if you want to do something badly enough - you'll find a way to make it happen.
That reminds me - this is the last week of bow season...
