Wrestling season

Wrestling season has begun. This is Caleb's second year of wrestling and Stewart's second year of coaching wrestling. But for most of the kids here this is their first year.

Josh with his fightin face on.

Liz ready to go.

Caleb, going for the take down - he's the one in blue.

This is my favorite picture. Not because of Caleb's glowing eyes or Liz losing, but because a moment earlier Caleb had been with me in the stands, but when he saw Liz struggling he jumped up, said "Liz needs me!" and ran to the mat to coach and encourage his sister. If only such loving moments weren't so rare.

Caleb turns 10!!

Caleb turned 10 this year. He loved his gifts from his family. G&G Hughes gave him this great fanny pack with two water bottles. He's very excited to use it during his fishing and hunting trips.

G&G Richmond gave him this blue blanket.

He also got enough cash to buy a good fishing rod that he's very excited to put to use. On his birthday we had this soccer ball cake (brownie) and celebrated with the family. But a few days later he got together with his friends from church and had a pool party in Craig. They had a blast!
I can't believe I have a 10 year old. I must be getting old.
