1000 Words: Let's Do This

The photo is of Elias just before heading onto the mat for his last match of the his first wrestling tournament. He was "a little nervous" this morning as we ate breakfast and talked about the day ahead. It is all very new to him, and a sport he came into knowing nothing about. Thankfully he is hungry to learn, and when he gets worked by better kids he has a good attitude. He just wants to learn and have fun. Today he surprised himself coming in second in his bracket, winning two matches and losing one. For those who like that sort of thing, you can see some shots of the day here. (I messed up on the shutter speed so there's blur when I could have avoided it.)
