    A little progression to report. He killed it last night! He shot 5 games with me. 156, 166, 188, 172 and finally his all time high of 221! He started the last game with an open, 2 strikes, an open, 5 bagger!, and a spare and strike in the 10th. Would have loved to have seen that game without the opens. Wow, just wow is all I can say. I've seriously underestimated this kid. I figured it would have been a full year or two before he seen his first 200 let alone a game like that. I had to try pretty hard to keep ahead of him that game, luckily I did with a clean 234 but that's not by much. Had he not opened in the 1st he probably would have got me.

    This is a tremendous amount of fun teaching him and watching him progress like this. I think I have to resign myself to the fact it won't be too much longer before he's gonna beat me. The good part is, when he does he will earn it. When he gets those bragging rights they will be well deserved and I will happily bow to it. If this keeps up when we get our membership cards he'll be getting his adult one when he meets the minimum age requirements. It would be sweet to have him as a doubles partner! I know I'm jumping the gun, he's still got much to learn but a proud dad can think ahead can't he?

    Wow. Amazing. Without doing the math looks like about a 175-180 average. That is unreal for 4 months experience. Just wait till he gets the hang of this game...lol

    I know right? You were spot on, it's 180 for the night. First thing he did when we got out to the truck was calculate it. LOL

    Consider it done. I had to laugh at his sister after she heard. She said if he was as good of a bowler as he is with annoying her then he'd throw a 300 every game. Sad thing is she's right.
