Tonight was RIT's hockey game at Blue Cross. The place was sold out and a sea of orange. The game was awesome and was back and forth the whole time. RIT scored to tie the game with 9 seconds left in the 3rd period. And then it only took 14 seconds to win in sudden death OT. The place went crazy...and so did my little hockey fan.
AJ loves going to the games. He chants "RIT, RIT". He claps when everyone else does. Tonight he even started to do the point at the goalie when the corner crew does "it's all your fault!" He also learned how to fist bump tonight. With 5 goals in regulation we had done it enough. He thought it was so much fun that he would go down the row wanting everyone to do it just because he could.
I love seeing him watching all of the action. You can see him taking it all in. Who knows...maybe we'll have to get him on some skates next year (and lucky for us I know a good teacher ;) )
Today is also Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Day. There was a wave of light going throughout the world. At 7 pm people lit candles to remember the babies who aren't here but should be. I wish it was more than a day but at least it's something. But for those of us who have lost a child you know that it doesn't matter the date you're always thinking about and remembering that child...and it's nice when other people remember too.
