But it was all good. The fans we were seated by were fine. There was an awkward moment when two hockey players started fighting. I wanted to cheer...you are supposed to cheer...but I was also surrounded by 50 fifth graders and various family members and I didn't think was probably the best thing to do. So I quietly cheered and rooted for the Stars' player. The kids all seemed to enjoy themselves and it was a fun thing for their grade. Plus John and I were able to go with Corynn alone. The twins stayed home and watched Evie. And to make it even better- Corynn's aunt, uncle and two cousins came too!
And the game turned out to be a pretty good one! The Stars won in a shoot out 4-3! Woohoo!
Here's Corynn's class. The went out on the ice prior to the announcement of the teams.
Corynn is the second from the right- in the white t-shirt with black long sleeves.
The actual singing of the National Anthem was so adorable! I sometimes forget how young they are...just ten years old! I taped it for the grandparents- so so sweet!
the gang: Amy, Ryan, Sam, John and Luke. (Corynn wasn't back from performing yet.)
Corynn had a blast and it was fun to hang out with the cousins! Such a neat experience for kids and something I'm sure she'll remember for a long time!
