Francis meets a celebrity


My son Francis plays hockey. He is obsessed with it actually. If he’s not on the ice he’s playing it in the street or in our garage or driveway. This winter was his first year on a team seeing that he is only 5 years old and was 4 when the season began. He took skating lessons the year before to learn to skate and this past winter he was allowed to join even though he is a year younger than the others. He loves it so much that we agreed to let him take spring/summer hockey. Well, all this is background to say that one of the kid’s on the team is the son of Mike Ribeiro, of the Montreal Canadians. Well today Mike not only came to the game but actually participated in it. He was a good sport and signed autographs for the kids afterwards. It was fun for the kids but more fun for the dads – if you know what I mean. :o)

Is it weird that Mike Ribeiro looks like a kid? That is super that Francis enjoys playing hockey. Maybe he will hit it big one day! Little boy dreams!

Keep smilin!
