Loving the Cheetah Nation

Every year I kinda forget how much Jack loves the Cheetah-thon. Part of it is that he just loves skating without having to wear all of his gear or being asked to do drills. But the thing I am reminded of, year after year, is how much Jack loves his coaches.

Yeah, he spends a lot of his time at the Cheetah-thon literally skating circles around his brothers, but he also makes sure to spend time skating and hanging out with his coaches, often hand-in-hand.

This year, Jack headed out on the ice while I was doing other stuff. When I finally got rinkside and spotted Jack, he was in the middle of the ice with three of his coaches doing a little dance.

"It's really hard to not love that kid," one of them told me later.

(I agree.)

Sam and Quinn did less on-ice boogie dancing, but they had fun too.

Even Quinn is warming up to his once yearly skating adventure. You might not be able to see it in this photo, but he's smiling and joyful here.

I really want to thank all of you who donated to the Cheetah-thon. This truly is an amazing team made up of incredible athletes and supporters. Thank you to Sarah, Kelly, Barbara, and Grandma for donating. If you donated and I missed you, please let me know because I would like to know and be able to thank you. It is really meaningful to my family that you contribute to the Cheetahs in Jack's honor. I also want to thank Heather and her family for coming to the Cheetah-thon.

We're going to enjoy our summer without early-morning Saturday practices, but come fall, Jack will be back on the ice.

Thank you.
