4th place!

Connor had his end-of-year wrestling tournament last Saturday. We got home from Disneyland Friday afternoon and had to be out of the house by 6:30am Saturday to make it to Kingston for the check-in time.

Connor lost his first match (to the kid who ultimately won 1st place in the weight class, and whose dad is the coach of the team he was on), won his next two matches (one of them with a pin), and then lost his last match, which was the match to determine 3rd/4th place. He REALLY wanted 3rd place (would have gotten a medal versus the generic ribbon 4th place+ received), but I'm really proud of his 4th place (out of ten kids in his weight bracket). He missed the first month of practices and worked his little hiney off this season. Way to go, Connor!

WOW! Connor's pins in his wrestling matches really added up. I think he had three safety pins on his arm the last time I noticed. Grandpa Jeff and I are really proud of you, Connor!
