Con went to his first fencing competition yesterday. (and Laguna Hills is gorgeous! moving there now)

he lost every. single. match. 

and I am so proud of him! so many kids were breaking down and he kept a really good attitude. He was nervous, which made him super-reserved and quiet but he didn't complain and he had a good time, and he learned a lot.  

I love that kid!

Good job Conner!! It is very hard to have your first competition. Especially when you do not do so well. But the point is you tried your hardest and you learned alot! And next time you won't be so nervous! Good luck with your next one, wish I could be there to see it.

I'm diggin' that dapper smile - very fitting for a fencer.

What a cool sport to get into. He'll go far with that attitude! Awesome!

My grandparents live in that area!
