Match #2

Tonight was Dallas' second match.  We have been battling ear infections, sinus infections, and Julianne even has pneumonia; therefore, the girls and momma stayed home tonight.

Doug snapped a couple pictures from the night.  
Dallas again wrestled twice.  He was pinned in the first match, and he pinned his opponent in the second match for the win.
Until next time...

First Wrestling Match

Today was the big day - Dallas' 1st wrestling match!  He was a little nervous, but he had a lot of supporters cheering for him.  Doug took him to the weigh in area and snapped this picture...
Our Muscle Man weighing in at 53 lbs
Warmed up and ready to begin.
 As I mentioned in a previous blog, Dallas is wrestling in the Mater Dei feeder league.  Mater Dei is the catholic high school on the west side of Evansville.  There are multiple elementary schools that "feed" into the high school.  There were 7 schools that participate in the wrestling program.  I would say there were easily over 150 young boys (preschool thru 8th grade) there to wrestle today.  The JV wrestled the first hour, and the varsity wrestled afterwards.  They try to separate the JV by age and then by weight.  There were 7 or 8 mats going at one time.  For the varsity, there were only 4 mats of wrestlers.

Dallas was able to wrestle twice today.  He got a take down early, but ended up being pinned.
The boys were either a red or green band around their ankle to aide the official in scoring.  Dallas was red both times.
This was his second match.
They actually went into the 2nd period before Dallas got the win!
Keep up the great work Big D!

Until next time...

Fun Friday Foto

Apparently, our cats think it has turned cold outside.  When Doug when out to check on the chickens yesterday morning, he found all three cats snuggled together in the chicken pen!  The bucket they are in is suppose to be a nesting box for the hens, but the cats have now claimed it for themselves.
Until next time...

Reba's Babies

While out in the barn today, Reba decided she needed to catch her banties.  She caught them both and carried them around for quite a while.  It's crazy how much she still loves those little birds!
Until next time...

Reader's Theater

This week has been Catholic Schools Week, and the students have had a very fun filled week.  It started with a surprise field trip on Monday to a local movie theater.  Even the PreK was able to attend, so Dallas and Reba were able to watch Homeward Bound with all of their classmates/friends.  They loved the movie!  They have also had dress-up days, one of which was pajama day.  I happened to be working the Book Fair that day, so Julianne helped and came in her jammies!
Today was Grandparent's Day, and Pa and Gram were able to make it down for the day. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture...but I was able to attend Dallas' Reader's Theater program.  All the kiddos did an amazing job reading their lines.

The first group was all girls.  It was about Sue losing a tooth and what the tooth fairy might bring.
Dallas' group was second.  He played the role of the dad in "Hugo's Unicorn" (and by the way...today was crazy sock day!)

I'm sad to admit, I forgot what the 3rd group's story was about, but they did a great job as well.
I always enjoy seeing what thinks are posted outside of Dallas' classroom...and there was quite of bit of his work on display today!  Here are a few of the many things...
"Snowflakes are unique and some am I.  I'm unique because I'm good at wrestling.  And I'm good at football.  I'm good at basketball.  And I'm good at baseball.  And I'm good at drawing.  And I'm good at coloring.  Dallas Bergman"
Writing words with the long o sound: "chose, cone, alone, home, drove, rose, Moses, rope, tone, phone, doe, rose, nose, close, clothes"
"Things I love: I love doing stuff at school.  I love playing Candyland.  I love making airplanes.  I love reading sports.  I love Dad and Mom.  I love eating strawberries and cherries."
Until next time...
