I thought Bodey took 3rd at the meet because he got a bronze medal, but apparently that's what color they get for 4th too! Bodey is such a strong little boy, but has a long way to go maturity-wise in wrestling. Which is fine... he is only 4. We really just wanted to get him exposed this year. He is also lucky, because the way his birthday falls, he will actually get to wrestle 3 years in 6U, and his 3rd year he'll be 7. So he'll definitely have the advantage, and experience, by then. Right now, Bodey likes to be on his back. Strength-wise, Bodey's got it. It is really hard for those kids to get him down. But when they do, he just lays on his back for them so that they can have an easy pin. Isn't he just a sweetheart? But, he doesn't care that he loses every match. He is the best sport ever. And I just love that about him. On his last match on Sunday, after he got pinned and the other kid was acknowledged for his victory, I saw Bodey tell the ref something. And then the ref started busting his gut laughing. I was worried, because you just never know what that little boy might have said. Afterwards, the ref told the coach what he said. "I don't care if I lost, my dad said he's gonna give me candy at home anyway." Greeeeaaaaat!

Booker has really come a long way this season. After the first practice I thought for sure Booker was going to have the same attitude with wrestling that he does with other sports. In other sports Booker just doesn't really care. He's not that interested and kind of wanders off to do his own thing. And that was how the first practice went. But since then, he has come alive. It's really fun to see the competitiveness come out in your child. Booker wants it all. He's got the "Go Gold or Go Home" attitude right now. This is good and bad. I'm glad he wants it. I'm glad he has something to work for. However, he still hasn't gotten a gold medal, and he gets kind of bummed. He's a really good sport though, and knows that he needs to put in the hard work at practice to keep improving, and hopefully get that gold medal. This last tournament was by far Booker's best. The first kid he wrestled had beat him before in Olathe, and this time Booker did much better against him, even though he still got pinned. But after that, Booker pinned his other two kids! One of the pins was in 12 seconds! We have two tournaments left, and then I might enter Booker in the state competition, since 6U kids don't have to qualify. If he still has his fire, I'm gonna let him go for it!
