    First practice of the new Nebraska High School season and my 13 year old son Jacob broke his first 25 straight tonight after a so-so first year last year. Following in the footsteps of Grandpa and Mom, thankfully, and not dad! Don't know how long it's going to take to get this goofy grin off my face :)

    Your son, and you, will look at that patch for years to come and the memory of that night will flood back. Give him an "atta-boy."

    Thanks everybody. I think he'll get a patch at Wednesday's practice. Maybe 50 straight then :)

    Outstanding! I know exactly how you feel having watched my 11 year old do the same thing last year. So who was more nervous on the last target, you or he? Never mind - I know that answer.

    Terry- Sure your proud. You Son accomplished a goal. The patch will be nice, the memory will be nice, but in a few years it will become faded. In three years from now, the 25 straight won't be a big deal.

    But, the bond you are creating between you and your Son will not only last throughout your years and his years, it will be cherished by both of you.

    25 straight, nice; a patch, big deal; shooting trap, fun; the bond between you and your Son, priceless.

    Terry, If it were me that grin wouldn't go away for a very long time. Please congradulate your son for me and be the proud dad you should be!
