Oh the happy joys of this time of the year! The hustle and bustle of the Christmas season and all that goes into and with that. Then it all comes to a screeching halt because we have WRESTLING! Tis the season!
Very excited for the boys! They both made it to a varsity position on the team. Jordan, I was concerned with because of missing out on last year with his head injury but he has grown leaps and bounds in such a short time. He KNEW he had some catching up to do and he has been determined. So proud of these boys and all of their hard work. This weekend we had two duels. And they both won both matches. It was NO easy task, they really had to fight for each one. Makes a Momma want to, you know the look, put hands on eyes with looking thru the cracks of your fingers!!!
This is so funny! As Jordan was standing there warming up for his match this child that Jordan wrestled (let’s just call him Mr. T without all the chains) came up to Jordan in his little deep voice and says, “I have neve los a match yet, so you bette watch out!” Jordan came up to me with a fear in his eye, pulls me down to his level so that he could whisper into my ear and said, “did you just hear what that kid said?” I said, “yes, and it looks he will learn what it feels like to loose here real quick!” And……that was the case, with a tear in little Mr. T’s eye.
Does he look shocked?
Dad giving him the ‘ole pat on the back and the ‘story’ about how it went all down given by Jordan himself.
This is Corvan’s best buddy that he is warming up with and then Jordan with his buddy in the back ground getting ready to cheer Corv on. I love the friendships they have made thru this. It is such an intense sport and they really do cheer one another on to victory or sometimes just a little encouragement because of a loss.
Corv, again, you never know what he is up to until that moment and then he, POP, brings it all together. He’s always so methodical. The coaches have learned to be patient because he is cooking up something and they just have to give him a minute to get it there.
A bit of coaching after the fact from Coach Ben.
Ok, we’ll call those ‘muscles’ in his back!
Corvan tries a pin the other way!
