Our Hockey Billet

Our Hockey Billet is such a great kid. Sami is from Finland, so we get the added adventure of two different cultures and languages coming together in one household. He loves our dog, Molson, and we think Molson loves him too.

We drive C nuts some days when we are teasing and taunting each other. Somedays I feel like Sami’s older sister and other days, “the picking up after him, making his dinner and doing his laundry days”, I feel like his mother. I am far to young to have an 18 year old son! I would have been 11 when he was born…. yup too young.

It never fails when I am in the laundry room folding laundry, he “sneaks” up behind me and scares the heck out of me. Then has a good laugh about it afterwards. He loves my lemon pies and chocolate chip cookies and even goes out in public with us. Usually just to eat and then a quick wander at the mall. Hey he’s 18, we probably cramp his style a bit.

He has been making us a “proud billet family” lately with the way he has been playing hockey lately. He had the two best hits at the game on Wednesday night and it was awesome to see him hit a player into the boards and watch them drop like a sack of potatoes.

I think I will really miss him when he goes home for the summer. I certainly hope he decides to come back next year because we would love to be his billet family again.
