Being a little more mindful

For the first time in my life, I can call myself a hockey parent! My wife and I signed up our oldest for hockey this year, but it wasn’t easy. When he first mentioned that he wanted to play, we were immediately worried about the costs involved from league fees to all the necessary equipment. […]
