Last night Nick has his final hockey game of the year. It was originally scheduled for Wednesday but the other team could not make it and said "switch to Tuesday or else you can have the gold medal because we'll forfeit". No one likes to win a season of hockey by forfeit and so the switch was made. The other team knew they could not win against our guys and they played dirty. One of our players got ejected because a guy on the other team managed to make his helmet come off while drawing the penalty. Not cool, but we won! Nick was very excited by this and literally bounced to the bleachers afterwards to give Belle his medal for safe keeping while he changed and celebrated in the dressing room. I am so thankful they won, but even more thankful that Nick will now lose his playoff beard, oh how I loathe the beard.

We also got that update we've been waiting for from the church where Nick hopes to do his apprenticeship. It was basically a "talked to the elders board, they are praying" update, but Nick also has to call the pastor and work the big picture down into details. Here's hoping it all works out!

It's a bit sad, but mostly glad that hockey is over, we're one step closer to NEVER BEING STUDENTS AGAIN!

Congrats Nick!! Yay!

I never thought about how that would feel for you guys- being done with the life of a student. I'm sure it feels like all you've ever known. ;) I hope all the details get worked out AND SOON!

I will be praying that the church says we would love to have you or another one just comes out and asks you, and the three of you will be at home with whereever you go!!!

I guess I meant four of you not three of you

Yay!! I'm ALL for not being students anymore. I think it's some kind of crazy self inflicted torture! :)

I know this is late, but I'm glad to see your back. I've quite missed you! Glad to know all is well. I'm praying for that church.
