First day of wrestling

An exciting day today!! My oldest boy wrestled his first wrestling match. I spent my first of many, I hope, days in a gym on the bleachers. A gym full off sweaty, stinky adolescent boys, some of which take any moment to show off their muscles when ever they can, so funny. I sat there in those bleachers for a total of four hours and my son wrestled for a total of 30 seconds, counting both his matches. He lost both matches and yet I was sooooo excited. I was already ready for the next meet. Bleacher butt here we come. I am just so proud of my boy. He was nervous and he is so new to wrestling he knew it would be tough, but he took on the challenge. He inspired me today. He knew he was going to take a beating, but he also knew he was going to have to start somewhere and was willing to take the risk to LEARN. He is excited about what he learned today and told me he plans on practicing those techniques this week.
