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.

Woo Hoo you fixed it! That's fun you have a sport your family can all do together.

I had no idea your guys' school was big enough to have wrestling... mats... and even the gear!

Misty, our school is a little small for sports, but wrestling is a great one because it's individual. The community really gets behind the school here and pushes for anything they think will be good for the kids. We are lucky to be in a brand new school with wonderful new equipment.

Hi! I found you! That is so sweet of Caleb to lend Liz support! Tell Caleb Happy B-Day even if it is late. I'll keep visiting, it's fun to see what you're up to.
