It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

Ryan's Wrestling Tournament

Last Weekend Ryan participated in his first wrestling tournament.  We are still trying to figure out if wrestling is something he is really interested in so I was glad it was a tournament that I didn't have to get him all the gear to participate in.

I am not sure if he really knew what to expect as he went in to his first match.  He was pinned rather quickly.  His second match however, he fought pretty hard and he pinned his opponent.  He knew going in to his 3 match that it was going to be a tough one. (he was going against the guy who hadn't lost yet that day).  He went in with a good attitude and fought hard.  He held on through almost all 3 periods.  His opponent was ahead by points, but Ryan was fighting hard to avoid the pin.  He was getting very tired and was finally pinned just before the end of the 3 period.  He ended up getting a third place metal for thte tournament and We were very proud of him for trying his best. 

I think he could have beat the first guy if he had one of his coaches with him, (but they were all occupied with other kids when it was Ryan's turn) and if he would have known a bit more what to expect.  I think he will do well in the future if he decides to continue with wrestling.  As for this tournament, it was all about getting some experience and deciding if he likes it enough to stick with it.  If he wrestles next year we will get him proper gear.

Here are a couple of photos of him.
