Tough One

Jacob had his second wrestling tournament today.  The kids in this tournament seemed a bit more competitive and aggressive in this worried momma's opinion.  And a mother's intuition is never wrong. 

Jacob was pinned in his first match. 

The second match was nauseating and exciting for a whole other reason.  Jacob was paired to wrestle his best bud, his partner in crime, his cousin. 
Although Jacob did come out victorious, it wasn't without mixed emotions.  He lost a little steam after that and lost his third match in a technical fall (a mercy rule). 
Jacob did not place nor did get a trophy and quite honestly, I'm okay with that.  If you want the hardware, you have to put in the hard work.
Even though I was proud of him for powering through a second tournament and sad for him that he didn't do better, he was not discouraged in the least bit.  Just before bed tonight there was talk of another tournament in Patrick Henry. 
Stay tuned.
