I kind of feel like I am just barely treading water these days! Sheesh! I just can’t seem to get completely on top of ANYTHING!
The twins have started a 2-week wrestling program, a first for them. BB has been dying to be in wrestling since last spring (we missed the deadline!) and Ash had no interest in wrestling, other than the normal “matches” that occur at home between to 6-year-old boys! Since it was only $10, I told him he should give it a try and if he didn’t like it, he could quit. Turns out they both love it. Me? Not so much.
They had their first
death match tournament Friday evening, and it was complete mayhem after weigh-in. Kids turned loose on the mats, dropping, pushing, attacking… it was scary to watch! Bridger had a bloody lip that we had to clean up before the actual tournament even began! I was so relieved when the coaches finally started the tournament and put order to the utter chaos.
Of course, my camera battery was dead, so I took the video camera. Turns out, that battery was dead, too. So here is the
horrible video shot on my Blackberry, courtesy of Averie…. (she skips in between the two guys. BB is in the first match, in the red shorts, and Ash is the second match w/white shirt, gray shorts)
Oddly enough, they both want to attend the tournament this weekend, too. I just have to mentally prepare myself first.
