Planning ahead

We’ve got:

1. One daughter, ranked competitive swimmer
2. One son, GTHL “A” forward
3. One son, GTHL “A” goalie
4. One son, snowboarder, swimmer and lacrosse nut

I’ve decided to quit my job(s) and start driving kids to and from rinks/pools/hills full-time.
Good bye, nice knowing you, etc.


  1. W the K - No, not Warren says:

    Four kids, fit and learning life lessons. It could be worse.

  2. Deb L says:

    Enjoy every minute of it. Some of the best conversations happen during those drives. It’s over before you know it.

  3. Neil says:

    Ummmm, then how will you pay for it?
    As the father of 2 A ranked swimmers (girls) I strogly sympathize. I can’t beleive that $200 racing suits only last 1/2 a season. Pool time in Calgary is super expensive!

  5. Ted H says:

    Give ’em a ride or give ’em a car, there are no other options.

  10. billg says:

    Trade you a clean quiet empty boring house for it….

  11. Jim Hanna says:

    Yeah, two of three in hockey and all three ALSO in skating, I seriously considered just pitching a tent outside the arena..

  12. John says:

    I know the feeling… hated it and loved it all at the same time.

  13. Claude says:

    I’ve often joked that if they built condos over my local hockey rink, I’d be the first to buy one. That being said, I’m amazed at what my kids have learned through sports and how much hockey in particular is where you will find Canada, in all its glory!
