Our family loves curling. Daddy and Grandpa play every week. I don't curl (only tried once and fell all over the ice - this game has one slippery shoe and I'm not that coordinated!). We've been watching curling on tv for the last month (the women's Canadian finals, the Men's Canadian finals and this week the Women's World finals. Go Canada Go!). Anyway, Joel loves to watch curling and he practices too! It's so cute - he'll take out his golf club and call it a broom and sweep his little fridge magnets down the "ice" saying "HURRY HARD" just like the curlers do on tv. Today, Daddy took him to the rink to ride the rock (a White tradition for many generations - to get pushed down the ice while riding the rock - only for very small people!) Apparently Joel wasn't interested in riding the rocks he wanted to play curling ... and so that's what they did. It's going to be a long few winters for him ... kids curling starts at about 5 or 6. Maybe they'll make an exception!
