Jake came home a couple of weeks ago with a flyer from school about wrestling camp. Wrestling. For 2nd graders. Actually, it is for 2nd-5th graders. I couldn’t believe that he wanted to do it. I was even more dumbfounded when I agreed to to.
They’ve had 3 practices so far and tonight, I laughed harder than I have in a long time. Belly laughs that made my stomach hurt. My 43 pound son, the smallest in the room, was having a fantastic time. He even managed to take down his opponent in one round.
Jake thinks that wrestling will help him be a better tetherball player. And, today he informed me that he prevailed in all three tetherball games he played. I’m not sure it has much to do with wrestling, but if he thinks so, I’m not going to burst his bubble.
