This past weekend you had a few firsts. Your first wrestling meet: three matches of which you won the first and lost the second and third. And your first time playing Words With Friends (with me, Grandma, Pop pop and Auntie Dawn).
I do not believe that I have ever heard your dad cheer so loudly. In fact, he was hoarse later in the day from all that screaming. And he even told me that he has never been so proud of you in your entire life. Not just because you won, but because even when you lost, your perseverance was just amazing.
You also started playing Words With Friends. You are mainly using 3-letter words and don't quite get the strategy of double and triple letters and words, but - if I may be a little nerdy for a moment - the fact that you are playing Scrabble with me and other members of your family evokes such a warm, bubbly, enormous sense of pride in me - even more than watching you succeed in wrestling.
