Taking My Nephew Mini-Golfing for the First Time
Here he's assessing the course. My sister and I let him play each hole by himself with as many strokes as it took. That way she could hold the baby, and I could help him without him feeling pressured. It took both of us swinging at the same time to get the ball up that ramp and through the house!
It was a beautiful day for it- until the rain came. But, just when it started, we reached the hole with the lighthouse where we could take shelter until most of the rain had passed. It was perfect timing! I think he had more fun throwing rocks in the water than actually hitting the ball.
On the way home, he said "Next time I'll be even better because I practiced." I thought that was such a great thought. He is so positive, and he's already learned that with practice you can achieve your dreams.
