My computer is working enough for one more month of photos! March fun.

Oh wrestling.  I have a love/hate relationship with wrestling season.  The people and community are a lot fun.  The sport is HARD!  The pressure is intense.  Joseph kept saying he wanted to do it again this year so we went for it.

Just like last year we had a lot of ups and downs. In the beginning of the season he got beat bad quite a number of times, which is not pleasant.  He never acts too phased by it, but I am sure he is.  And I hate it.  Say one time we drove half an hour, sat around for a couple of hours, with a crazy toddler, he had two matches and got pinned both times.  NOT FUN.

But as the season continued things seemed to get better.  Maybe some good lessons in perseverance, trying hard, working at it (he did push ups everyday!), making new friends, etc…  Anyways, we ended up having some much better times.  As long as Joseph tried hard I was happy—and hopefully him too.

There’s a lot of waiting around in wrestling…

Third place!  (PS this is a little deceiving—there are only about 5 kids in a class.)

A wrestling friend had our old go cart, upgraded, and so we bought ours back!

Joseph LOVES this thing!

February photos, or desperately trying to get something—anything—on here!

My phone, computer, and wifi are all not functioning correctly.  Very frustrating.  But not quite frustrating enough to go out and buy new stuff…

Sledding adventure in Bristol

Cuties at about 0 degrees.

Ski lessons (too cold for much picture taking)

Hitting the sloped for the first time with Joseph!  I was so scared to get back on the lifts, but Joseph was adamant I give it a try (and aren’t I always telling him to try new things and push himself?) so we gave it a go and had a blast.

We did stick to the easiest trails.  But no one got hurt and we were happy!  We even found some friends up there.

Valentines for his class—I loved all the effort, attention, and originality Joseph put into these.  Do you see how each is humorously decorated?

And a hand made eraser for each classmate.

And a star wars origami figure!

A snowshoe on some Shoreham trails.

It was magical.
