What to do???

Our Brody is a fantastic little goalie. We've heard it from Lot's of people, It makes us feel good even though we did not do one thing to make him that way. It makes him feel good to hear it. He's got a passion for the game, so when we got a phone call last Saturday from the Southern Alberta triple A Elite Team coach or manager, B and Brad got really excited (OK i was excited as well).
They said a couple of the coach's had see B play at a tourney and wanted him to come tryout with them.

This team is a team made up of the top players in Southern Alberta who play spring hockey all over alberta and i guess into Sask. So Brad took B to the Practice tonight. They walked in and the two coaches came right over and were excited to try B out. Brad said B was on fire tonight. He made tonnes of glove saves on the coaches and the players.

Long story short they were so impressed with B. The one Coach has been doing this for 15 years and he said B is easily one of the top 3 in his age group that he's ever seen. They took Brad into the other locker room and said they want him on the team for sure.

This is super exciting for B and Brad, But our first concern is Sunday Play................ We don't do it. So Brad told him, the coach said they do have there practices on sunday but if B play's they will switch them to saturday's and as for games on sunday, He said the only ones are tourney games which there is only 3 so we think we maybeable to skip them.
Our other main concern is obvioulsy the Money............... and it cost, but they are willing to cut our fee in half which is awsome but still pricey plus they have 3 tournys one in Edmonton, Calgary and Saskatoon so it the gas money and lodging. We could do it but it's a tonne of commitment.

Oh what to do???? Im really just thinking out load. I guess we'll decide by sunday. But all in all we are so proud of B! It's away's so good to hear how great you kid's are!!
