difficult child had his first wrestling tournament yesterday. He had so much fun! He didn't win a match but did get a medal (everyone does!). husband got him there around 7:45 and then I met them there around 11:00 (I had to work). I was able to see him wrestle all three matches. His third one was his best. It took quite awhile for the other to pin him. The mom of the boy who beat difficult child in that last match said for a first tournament he did great! He was a great sport about not winning-he just had fun. It lasted til about 2:00. It was fun to watch him hang out with kids and have a good time. This wrestling is a good outlet for him. I wish it would carry over more at home but at least he is enjoying it and fitting in with other kids. They have tournaments almost every weekend so this will keep him busy. He has practices twice a week and tournaments are on the weekend. We probably won't hit every tournament but difficult child likes it so much we plan to do quite a few-and the cost is reasonable-only $10.00 a tournament!
