Anyone Up For A Hockey Match?

The kids are on their autumn break and our eldest decided he wanted to do some DIY and make his own hockey goals. I thought it was a good project to keep him busy so we started with the planning straight after breakfast yesterday and much to my surprise we were finished the same day. I think he was highly motivated, because he and his siblings love hockey. Even before I had all the netting stapled, I already had hockey balls flying round my ears!

As soon I we got home from the building center the work started. I hadn’t even had time to unpack the car and someone was already busy…

It always amuses me that when they enjoy doing something how quickly it gets done.

(not like when I ask them to tidy up their bedrooms)

Drilling is definitively his favorite job…

After the frame was standing I got the job of finishing off the net.

Finished! Both the goals and so am I.
