Luke the Determined

Luke came home from school the other day and told me he played a sixth grader at tetherball and lost.  This amuses me for a couple of reasons.  First, I laugh as I imagine the big kid challenging Luke to a match and Luke actually thinking, "yea, I could take him."  Second, I giggle as I imagine this sixth grader whacking the ball with every turn and Luke helplessly jumping and swinging at air.  Thirdly, I smile because he was absolutely not bothered that he got totally smoked only encouraged to practice more.

His request from Santa...a tetherball set.  It's already on the way.

I love it. What a little champion he will grow up to be :-)

That sixth grader is a weenie for taking on a first grader! BUT if any first grader was up for it, it's Luke.
