Jonathan's First Game

Jonathan had his first hockey game of the season on Saturday (as well as his second on Sunday, but it was out of town and we didn't attend). He is doing very well and having fun, which is the important thing.

I never know where he's going to be, and many of my shots were fro the back, but he is breaking down the left wing in this photo, which I decided to post in mono.

Here's a head-on shot: not the best focus, but it's still a good moment.

He drives toward the net on a bit of a breakaway.

He had two breakaways but didn't score. Goals were hard to come by; there were only 3 in the whole game, 2 by his team. His over-skated the puck on this one, but it was a good try.

His position was defence, which is what he was guarding in this photo.

He has his eye on the puck carrier.

.A few more times with the puck.

It was fun to see. He's made amazing progress in the two years since he began, not being able to skate.

How wonderful that you can attend some games and watch his progress. Canadian fun!

Love hockey! He looks very intent on the game, and I bet it's fun to watch him play. When my dad was stationed in Grand Forks my school had a hockey team and I remember watching one or two games. It is a very different atmosphere to sit in the arena than to watch on tv.

great shots! I miss watching a grandson play hockey; only the oldest did, and hasn't in a while. The younger two haven't shown any interest yet. Great photos!

Wow! It must be such fun for you to watch. Hockey was one sport my son could never get into. Your grandson looks to have great form!
