My Little Champ!




Well as many of you know our sweet Braxton seems to move from sport to another as the year goes. He just finished up with Basketball and wasted no time breaking out the wrestling gear. For all of you who do not know the wrestling blood runs deep in the Balmforth family and Braxton has surely taken to the sport and really excelled at it. (Just like his Dad) We have jumped full force into the wrestling practices and tournaments every weekend from now until May 2 crazy I know but he loves it and that's all that is important. This weekend he wrestled at the Sugar Salem wrestling tournament where he placed 1st place in Folkstlye and also placed 1st in Freestyle he did great. He went 9-0 and pinned all is guys but two and won the others by points. We were also so excited because Braxton pinned all his guys in freestyle and was awarded the OUTSTANDING WRESTLER AWARD for his age. It was a great day Carson, Carter, Mike and I enjoyed being there cheering him on and what made the day even better was Braxton was able to see and share the day with his cousin Taylor as he was awarded OUTSTANDING WRESTLER for his age also. We are so proud of the both of them.

What a cute little kid! Way to go-that is awesome! I think Bridge will be a great little wrestler as well. He is little but scrappy (is that a word)! For a few years though, the closest I will get to a wrestling match is Bridge and his daddy on the living room floor!
