{this moment} J A C O B

{this moment} ~ A Friday ritual. — capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.


Last night was Senior night for wrestling and Jacob was honored.

It’s sort of sad and terrifying to have an 18 year old Senior Son in the house, but he is so ready for life!  Yes, he still needs a driver’s license, college education, a good job, but he already has the important things– a good upbringing, good attitude, good looks, and good woman.  🙂



Is there anything cuter than watching the boys dive into the middle of the mat right before a meet?  These kids are so fun and good natured.  They are a joy to watch.


There was this handsome assistant coach………..




He got to shake the principal’s hand and I was given some beautiful flowers, which I took home and divided up between myself and the sisters.



The other team did not have a guy to wrestle Jacob’s weight class so Rich bumped him up to wrestle the next weight class.


Jacob made the hometown proud with his aggressiveness.



And he came out on top for a pin and a win.


Well done, Jacob!  I am so proud of you but I’m also sort of sad to be watching all these “last times.”
