zach found hunter and followed him around all morning.
mom and dad go there just in time for the matches to start, and the fun began!
aj wrestled first. this was the first time i've ever gotten to watch him.
i thought he did awesome - but i don't really know anything about it. what's that ref doing? is that good? does that mean points for or against?
emma was up next, against another little girl, and they were so polite and gentle. it was emma's 1st match, and i'm glad it was an easy one. she won that one.
troy had to leave to go get some sleep, and bert went with him to take sawyer and zach home, which was a relief. my back was killing me from carrying him around, and it was too busy to let him run free. he would have ended up in the middle of one of the mats! mom and dad headed out too, and the rest of the day it was just me, emma, and alex. they hung out in the bleachers with the other kids, mooching off of other people's ds's and headphones. we seriously should buy our kids some toys of their own.
the next match was pretty rough on her. the boy was a good wrestler, and he just got the better of her. she started to cry a little but didn't give up. she was madder that she cried than that she got beat. she knew troy didn't want to see tears, but the kid kept stuffing her face into the mat! luckily she had a longer break between it and her last match. she won that one, and placed 2nd. woo hoo!
aj lost two and won two, and ended up placing 4th in his bracket. :) medals for both!
***i'll keep trying to add the video here***
he got pushed around pretty good by this kid, harding, from SEK. afterwards he told me the kid was trying to choke him - to DEATH! he kept coughing and was upset and crying but still had a great attitude. the boy who won, ended up winning the bracket. i think. i'm still not sure what was going on. but he was a tough little guy, that's for sure. and alex wore him out - it wasn't an easy win.
oh - and where did this crazy sports mom attitude come from? i was all "KILLKILLKILL" when the kids were wrestling! grrr! get em, nobody better touch my babies! maybe i don't want the video on here after all...
all in all, a fun day. probably would have been better if i had gotten some sleep saturday night. but i can sleep when i'm dead, right? at least, i hope. otherwise, death's gonna suck.
