Peter's first meet was in Lovell. He wrestled three times and lost 2 and won 1. He gets pretty upset when he loses and there are tears involved, but he really likes it. His first match he got pinned with a headlock and he did not like that at all! He told me that when we got home he was going to look up on YouTube ways to get out of a headlock so it wouldn't happen to him again! His determination reminds me of Palmer's when he would wrestle.
Here are some pictures of the meet:
|This is the gym at the beginning of the meet, they had 8 matches going on at the same time.|

|Pete hates his picture taken so he wasn't amused that I took this while we waiting for him to wrestle. Wrestling meets involve A LOT of waiting!|
|His first match where the kid pinned him with a head lock. This kid placed first in the competition.|
|Here is another picture of the same match as it's getting started.|
|This is before his second match as he waits for his turn.|
|This is his third match. He almost won-lost by only two points. His coach is in the background with the red shirt.|
|The third match again.|
Peter really improved between the first and third match. We're pretty proud of him for trying his best. We spent nearly the entire day in Lovell-left at 6:30am and got back around 3:00pm. It was just Brian, Eric, Lucy, Peter and me since Andrew was snowmobiling at a friends cabin and Emma was at region basketball in Glenrock.
