Whew... I'm happy for Friday this week! Ok... I'm happy for Friday every week.

How do you like the updated blog header and colors? I used the new kit for the header and am pleased with how it came out. I love changing up my blog on a regular basis. I also change out my wallpaper and screen colors on the computer every month. I don't think I ever posted my November wallpaper, so here it is.

We got news this week that the high school league is requiring neck guards this season. This protects the players neck against skate lacerations. Unfortunately they have never been enforced because lacerations are so rare and the neck guards are so uncomfortable. We took Ollie to our favorite pro shop earlier this week and the good news is we found something he's pretty comfortable with. It's an under armour type shirt made by Itech with a higher neck (sort of like a mock turtle) that is made with kevlar. It's much more comfortable than the traditional neck guard and has the certification stitched right on it. We sent the information to coach and he's already approved it as fitting within the requirements. That makes Ollie a happy camper!
Ok, so I'm much more nervous about his high school tryouts this weekend than he is. Tryouts are tomorrow and Sunday morning. They are going to be skating at the Prudential Center where the Devils play. Hopefully I'll be back here on Sunday afternoon or Monday morning with good news!
Have a great weekend!

Sneak peek ....

Here's a sneak peek at the kit that is finished but doesn't have a name yet. I've sent it to a dear friend and am hoping she gets some inspiration from it. You should see Ollie's list of suggestions... there were some great ones but I just can't seem to get the right feel for this kit. It's funny, usually I design with a theme of some sort in mind, this one was just a random color palette that developed into a kit. I'm pretty pleased with the results, now if I can just name it! Once it has a name, it won't take long to get in the store.

In other news, the travel season is over. Ollie ended the last game of the travel season with a goal and an assist. This weekend is tryouts for the high school team. Cross your fingers, he's really hoping to play Varsity this year. He's hoping to play Varsity only, or both Varsity and JV full time. He's been working really hard and I'm really crossing my fingers that it pays off for him.

End of the marking period was Monday so he's on to the 2nd one now. Drivers ed started on Tuesday and he'll be getting his permit after this marking period and he passes the written test. Report cards should be out some time next week and he's feeling pretty good about it. I can't believe he'll be 16 on the 22nd.... where did time go????? He'll always be my baby!
Back to the piles and piles of work I need to get done. Have a great day!

Wow, it's been a while since I did a post other than ads. It's been crazy busy at the Oliver household (ok, so it's almost aways crazy... but this is outside the normal realm of our typical crazy). The hockey travel team season is winding down and we are gearing up for the high school season. This is our last weekend of travel games until end of February/beginning March. We are hoping to resume for couple of practices and games prior to going to Tournament on March 13th. High School tryouts are next weekend (15th & 16th ... cross your fingers for Ollie!) and we'll find out then if he's playing JV, Varsity or both. There will probably be some captain's practices this week but we haven't gotten that schedule yet.

I'm running on empty this week as we've been to bed very late every night for one reason or another. I'm hoping to sleep in a little tomorrow morning, but we've got errands so I'm not sure it's going to happen.

I've been working a little at the time on converting all our sides and negatives to digital format. We have tons so I don't know if I'll ever get it all done, but I'm sure going to try. Haven't exactly figured out how I'm going to organize them yet.

Here's the first picture ever taken of Ollie. He's probably about 4-6 hours old in this photo (early morning, November 23, 1992). I'm so thrilled to get these digital so I can scrap with them!

I'll have to share other cute ones as I get them done. I've got pictures from last weekends games that need to be downloaded too. I think I need a duplicate of me to get some of these projects done!

Ok, back to the crazy busy list of things to get done. Have a great Friday!
