I thought given December and the holidays are fast approaching, I might take this opportunity to update you, on me and my family and keep it nice and light, afterall thats what the holidays are all about, FAMILY!
As you may recall my wife Sherry started working with me in June, some of you have had the pleasure of interacting with her and I know she has enjoyed meeting you, and looks forward to meeting the rest of you throughout the new year!
Our kids Ella and Nolan are now 12 and 11 and are VERY busy with travel hockey! I help coach Ella's Windsor Wildcats Peewee team, so thats means we are on the road alot this year while Sherry is busy chauffeuring Nolan to his games! Between the two we have been to tournaments in Indiana, Pittsburgh, Michigan, Oakville, Kitchener and one more in Ajax in the new year, not to mention the countless trips around the county and in and around London for regular league games! What else would we do right?
On a more personal note I am still enjoying playing guitar and learning new songs from bands like the Strumbellas and The Avett Brothers! About a year and half ago I decided to get healthy and fit and started playing hockey again! I now play 2 times a week as well as participated in the CARHA international tournament here in Windsor where we played teams from Finland, Switzerland and the U.S. Since I was playing hockey I thought I should start exercising so I took up Crossfit and have really enjoyed the challenges that come with the intense workouts and now its just part of my routine.
Overall I can say I am truly blessed, it starts at home with my family, but it continues with my business and YOU my clients, as I enjoy hearing about your trips and your kids and your goals and allowing me to be part of that really makes it all worthwhile!
Have a safe and happy holidays and enjoy time with your family!
