I know I already Facebooked about it, but dang, I'm pretty darn excited for these guys. . .and Katie!
Declan is kneeling on the left side of the banner.
We just got our game schedule for the state championships starting Saturday. I hope I'm more relaxed than I was at playoffs where I could barely stand to watch. I was trying to record the game, but my hands were shaking so badly that when we watch the game years from now, I think we'll wonder if there was an earthquake in Aspen that weekend.
In reality, we'll probably have our asses handed to us in the first game, but these boys are the first local Squirt C team to ever make it to playoffs, let alone win it and then make it to the state championships.
The facility in Aspen was amazing and there was lots to do for the siblings, which was a relief. Finn spent the long hockey weekend on the climbing wall, in the pool, watching movies on the portable DVD player in the lobby, and mooching candy off of people.

A few of the moms celebrate being able to breathe again.
And finally, after all of the games were finished, Declan got to spend some time on the climbing wall.
We figured he'd earned it.
