Hockey camp

As the boys ate breakfast this morning they were talking about their first day of hockey camp yesterday.  Dima complaining of sore muscles from the team workout on Saturday and calling the coaches "mean" and saying they make them run and do exercises "for no reason" and as I tried to explain that everything they do is to work certain muscles and that in the end they'll be better hockey players because of this camp in the back of my mind I'm thinking " thanks coaches for making this a real challenge for them, really working them out and for dealing with what I'm sure is a lot of whining from the kids".  Then as Josh wheeled his bag (that's bigger than he is) into the rink he was saying " I think this is good for my muscles!"   Hopefully, there'll be a little less whining today, but it's going to be a long one cause they have camp from 8:30-4:30 then, both teams have practice tonight so they'll be going until 8:45!
