Caleb had two games this morning, one at 630 am (rise and shine!) and the other at 810am. On our way to the 630 game, in the dark and cold, we found the song "Wide Awake" on the radio. It was very appropriate. The first game was tough. Our team took 11 shots on goal. Humph. The other team took 43 shots on Caleb. Hence, we lost 12-1. But not without some terrific efforts on Caleb's part and the defense. Second game was different. We were more awake and we won 6-3. Again, Caleb and his defense did great and our offense turned it on. A good day. Now we need to go get that primary talk ready for William and showers for everyone.

For New Years Eve we ventured out of the house to go to Thanksgiving Point and watch a movie done by National Geographic called "Robots". A perfect movie for Caleb, he loves robots, but we thought everyone would enjoy it.
