Wrestling Fun

It's been a while since I posted. Life gets too busy sometimes and I just had a week like that last week. With some activity every night last week I just didn't have the time.

Anyway...We spent the weekend at wrestling events! Payton is in second grade and goes to wrestling at his school every weekend. He likes to enter wrestling meets although his skill level is still pretty low. He has certainly made improvements over the last several years. Trilby just enters him in a few meets so he can learn, but not get burned out. He wrestled three other boys on Saturday and got third place.







Sunday he just had one boy to wrestle so they wrestled twice. This meet doesn't have winners/losers, but they all get a trophy. Travis, Kerry, Tasha, Trina, Tanner, Bud and I all went to the meet to support him. Travis gave him pointers during his matches which really helped him. Following the meet we all went to McDonald's for lunch then some of us went home and some went on to Carver-Hawkeye Arena where the Iowa wrestlers were holding a mini camp.


Each boy got a t-shirt and some mat time with one of the wrestlers. ( OKAY SO THE FOLLOWING PHOTO WOULD NOT WORK! IF YOU CLICK ON IT YOU WILL SEE THE PHOTO. CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH THIS??? VERY FRUSTRATING!)

They then got to stay for the Iowa/Illinois match, which of course Iowa won hands down!

Cael preferred to mop up the mat than to wrestle!


It is so much fun to watch the boys grow and develop their interests!

Looking at you little wrestlers sure brings back good memories for me. I miss those Saturday tournies, although at the time I thought I would never have a free Saturday again. Cute boys!!

Payton had a terrific time all weekend! Is a little disappointed that he won't be wrestling in any tournies this weekend! Cael will eventually find his thing!! This was his first exposure to actually participating in wrestling!
