4th Place...

Knox wrestled in his 2nd real tournament of his wrestling season. We don't wrestle every weekend because 1. He is 4 ( therefore winning is a stretch) 2. The tournaments last FOREVER and 3. We like to do things on the weekends :). He wrestled in the Tot 2006/2007 , 45 lb weight class. He actually only weighs 41 lbs so he was on the low end of his weight class and the younger end as well since he is a 2007. He wrestled his first match and WON 11-5 ! I was so nervous and excited I was shaking for a while after the match...Oh how I dread it when he is older :). He lost his next 3 matches but did so good. Just by winning the first match he placed 4th. Not sure how that bracket was set up, but I don't care, he placed. Knox always asks when he is going to get his medal. One of the reasons he likes to wrestle is for the hope of a trophy. So when he heard that he was going to get a medal our boy was so excited. So they call his name and they gave him a yellow ribbon. Really ?! He turned to me and asked "what is this?" "Where is my medal?" He was heartbroken and not the least bit thrilled about placing anymore. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd got medals. Luckily I know the guy running the tournament and and quickly ask him if there are any extra could knox have a Medal instead of a ribbon and he quickly took Knox over and put the Medal over his head :) I think the pictures speak for themselves...taken only 1 minute a part :)
