A day to go down in history

Write it down in the history books people, something monumental has happened in the life of my oldest son, that has never been done before in his whole 20 year life.

He has beaten his Father.

They have been playing together for twenty years, tennis, basketball, swimming, chess, we could go on and on, but with the exception of maybe ping pong, my brute husband has always prevailed........but times have changed my friends, and roles are beginning to reverse, and although I don't think he is quite ready for the wheelchair, there is a tiny chink in his otherwise flawless armour.

Dakota was the victor on the golf course today, and came home sunburn and beaming with pride. His father gave him the proper kudos,

smiled for the camera,

and then swiftly wrestled all six foot one and 200 lbs. of college flesh to the floor...

no problem.

Amy, I love to see pictures of your family. Such happy smiles - from the father too! I have tried to e-mail you a couple of times, but I get failure notices every time. Hugs Mette

Michael is still forced to say "Mercy" by Andy's handshake, but the contest is taking longer every time. I see a day coming where it will be a tie!
