Amber Has Joined the Wrestling Team !!

Amber is one tough little lady, and last night, Sarah and Wendy, and I went to her school to watch a practice match her school had with another school's team in the area. She didn't win, but she gave a good fight against some VERY big boys on the other team. She has only had a couple weeks of practice so she's still learning. Her coach said that two girls students he taught in the past, went on to wrestle through college and one is going for the Olympics this year! She seems to have the determination to keep going, and isn't afraid that she'll get hurt.. So far...

They have kids as small as 60 lbs on up on each team, and they matched them according to weight classes.

The boys she fought looked a lot heavier than she does. At least we were her cheerleaders for the night and boy! did we cheer for her! Amber is in the red shirt and black pants.

If she's enjoying herself doing it, that's the main thing. Good on her, definitely.

Tho... goodness! If it was my granddaughter out there in a headlock... I'd be a mess! hahahaaa.

Hope you're all doing well, and coping through your long white winter.
