Their first Tournament!

So Jaden and Ty went to their first wrestling tournament. I was a very nervous mom watching them participate. So it turned out that Jaden was the only kid his age in the 70lb weight class, so automatically got first place. Which he is very proud of! So they bumped him up to the 75lb weight class, that way he at least got a chance to wrestle. Since this was his first tournament he really didn't know what to expect, he did pretty good but he didn't win any matches. But he could care less about that because he got a medal anyways. So he walked away a very happy kid!
Now for TY he was in the 35 lb weight class, the first round he got a by which means basically they gave him a freebie . In order for Ty to get a medal he needed to win two matches. Well the first match he got pinned. The second match was against one his friends from our wrestling club and Ty pinned him. It was really fun to watch those two together. So he has one more match to win if he wants to get a medal, the match starts out really good he's doing really well against the kid , then the ref blows the whistle for a break. Well TY thinks he's calling the match and that he has lost, so he bursts into tears even though we explane that it's not over he still has a chance. He continues to cry so finally they do call the match because he can't stop crying. Even 30 minutes later when we are now home he is still crying. It was a very trying experience hopefully things will go better at the next tournament.

I've been tagged....... thanks Michelle

10 years ago: Lets see here 10 years ago we had almost been married 2 years. We were living in Prescott, AZ in a 500 sq foot apartment. Dave was finishing up his degree and I was working at Silver Scissors. We were still in the Honeymoon stage (Yes ours lasted awhile) So even though we were dirt poor and living in this little tiny apartment, we thought life was perfect. We were looking forward to Dave being done with school, and I thought once he was done with school I would never have to work again.(I was very wrong) Ahhhh the good old days!

5 Things on my to do list:
Get supplies needed for my trip to Abq
Deposit my money
Clean my house
Go to the gym
Get packed for my trip to Abq

3 Bad habits:
I procrastinate all the time
I never make the bed (which really annoys Dave)
I leave my shoes all over the house

Places I've lived:
Holbrook, AZ
Mesa, AZ
Prescott, AZ
Albuquerque, NM
Phoenix, AZ

Things most people don't know about me.
Let's see I guess you could say I'm some what of a control freak. But not about everything, just certain things. I won't go into the boring list.

If I could live on a tropical island for the rest of my life I would. Give me white sand and crystal clear water and I'm a happy girl.

Oh yes, I can not whistle. Dave loves to mock me about this, especially now that Jaden can and I can't.

Here are the lucky people I have tagged.... Mindi, the Jen and Frances
