Can this Mom brag a minute?

" Clay the Wildman"
Sporting his medal at the end of the day

This was his last fight. He is in the red singlet. Can you tell how much
bigger the other kid was?

Here he is again the red singlet with brown hair.


Saturday was a very long day. I got up around 4:00 AM to get ready and get somethings done before we had to leave. I have to say Ana Claire was a trooper. We had Clay at his school to weigh in at 6:00 AM. Then we were off to the other school for weigh in again at 6:30. There were eight schools represented. I am proud to say that Clay came in second place for his weight class. He started wrestling last year. His skills and strength have improved tremendously from last year. He fought hard. His last fight he lost which put him in second place. This team dominated in every weight class. He put up a good fight and scored points, but he was so tired and the other kid dominated. It was very hard to watch as he got taken down and couldn't get up. In his Mom's eyes he ROCKED! The day ended with medals around 4:30. It was a long and stressful day. He loves the sport. I was so proud of him. This was his first time ever to place in a tournament. Way to go Clay!

Hives - I really don't do anything to ward them off - I am not sure why Jade gets them. Hers actually look welty and move!! We are scheduled for an allergist - the wait is 3 months. She gets them about once a year - I usually give her Benedryl. Good luck!!
