Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Back To School

CHICAGO, IL - MARCH 31: Artemi Panarin
CHICAGO, IL - MARCH 31: Artemi Panarin /

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Well, I’m not sure about your neck of the woods, but here where we live it’s back to school for the kids.

It’s pretty sad when summer comes to an end especially when it’s only August 7th! We are only two weeks away from the solar eclipse that our school district is giving kids the day off for here.

When it comes to my family, this will be a sad day.  Our family tradition is to go to McDonalds on the first morning of school, and this will be the first time my son Spencer won’t be there.  For the first time ever it will just be my daughter since the two oldest boys are now out of high school.

I know this is more about me then it is about the Chicago Blackhawks.  There is really nothing going on with the franchise right now, and writing is a way of therapy so I hope you bear with me this morning.   Please listen to me to never let a moment slip through your hands with any of your loved ones, because wanting one more day or hug or minute is a very tough road to go every day.
