We finished up the wrestling season with some BIG wins. Dalton and Tanner qualified to wrestle at regions this past Saturday. Yes~ that's Dalton pinning a 6Th grade GIRL in 1:10 minutes. There was 495 wrestlers in Windom wanting a chance to go to state. Some weight classes had over 25 kids in them. 1 thur 4Th place would advance. The boyz each placed 5Th place in their weight classes. Tanner's last match was outstanding, Coach Cody was screaming at the top of his lungs and Tamara had tears running down her face ! Dalton was jumping up and down mat side. He finally did it .....He WON 9-2. I've never seen a bigger smile. The boyz had an outstanding 1St year of wrestling. We can't wait until next season.

We finally got out on the ice this winter. This past Sunday the boyz had a great time running between Uncle Paul's and Grandpa's fish houses. They all caught some nice sized perch but Darin only could snag the little ones. Uncle Paul tried to get Tanner to kiss his fish and the best part was we didn't have to clean any of them. Auntie Cherrie sent us home with two meals of fish ready for the pan. Hard to believe nobody stepped in the hole or got a glove wet. It's a far cry from when we used to take the boys out in the little calm hut.

The boyz had a busy Saturday of wrestling. Both Tanner and Dalton had an excellent showing. We thought this would be the last weekend for the boyz, but they BOTH qualified to go on to regional in Windom on the 29Th of March. Tanner finished 4Th for the day and Dalton got 2ND they must finish in the top 4 at regions to go on to State the first weekend in April. They will continue to have practice till that time. Tanner will be pulling double duty with track practice starting on Monday the 10Th.

Carefully buddy the last boy who got up in Dalton's face left the court crying..........
We had a very busy day of basketball in LeCenter on Saturday. The boyz all had a great time this season and learned a lot. When Dalton would make a basket he would point to Mom with his point total to make sure she was getting some pictures taken. They played 3 games that day and he never fouled out, so it was a moral victory. These are all classmates of Dalton a far cry from a year ago when Dalton was 1 of 4 kids in his class. We switch gears again for next weekend when Tanner and Dalton have a wrestling tournament in Springfield. Looks like both boyz will be sticking with wrestling.
