My whole family is a large time hockey family, and in our section of Libertyville Illionios, it is easy to get into hockey.
It is cold just about all yearâ€¦ Playing hockey comes naturally with the cold, my youngsters have more than one teamsâ€¦ They have a team they play on while the people I was with and I were in the university year and a travel hockey team over the summer.
They of course don’t play on the same teams eitherâ€¦ So I am always washing and organizing different jerseys. My husband and I have a color coded calendar to try and organize who is going where, then when people hear where I live, pretty much everyone thinks I must hate the cold. For our lifestyle, it is perfect! Both of us have a backyard pond that freezes from time to time. My youngsters and I all go out there and skate for a bit. When it snows the whole family makes snow angels, fights with snow balls and makes snow men. The youngsters have friends that all celebration to go skiing, snow tubing or snowboarding. The Winter time sport and cold is just what the people I was with and I are used to and love. I can’t imagine going surfing or to the beach, and our beach is the ice rink. I don’t mind bundling up for the cold. I truly don’t mind that my A/C system is more of a decorative piece. It is more about heating and the Winter time season. I could never transport further south where it gets into the 90s and sometimes 100 degrees, then how do those people survive? The heat would just kill me.
