Luke is currently into all sports, but right now when we are outside golf is his favorite. He has gotten pretty good at hitting the ball, even using a tee, and he has the follow through down as well. Our only concern is the number of times he hits the ball off the tee and his multiple fake attempts at hitting the ball. If he was playing for real I think others would be frustrated.
However his biggest nemesis on the "golf" course is "PETE". The little brown dog who loves to steal his golf balls, especially right off the tee. Then he runs after her and yells "pete drop-it" Sometimes she listens and sometimes she doesn't, but still very comical!!

We have also been working on sharing. Luke is a hoarder of many things, mostly balls. There are probably 20 golf balls in the house right now that he likes to carry around in a basket and won't give any of them up. Peanut or "pete" loves golf balls as well to chase and to chew on, so she always comes over and steals one or two. Luke has a fit and runs after her. I taught him to say "pete drop it" to give the ball back, but as you know, dogs don't always respond. When she does drop it, he never throws it to her, so he really doesn't like to drop it. Today Luke was playing with his balls and Raff came and took one. Luke freaked out and tried to steal it off Raff (being played by Joe). Raff told Luke he had to ask nicely "Raff please share ball with Luke"-Please Share came out on a few occasions, if it didn't the ball wasn't handed over. Well after playing this game for so long Luke decided he wasn't going to ask and Raff wouldn't give him the ball, so Luke looks at me with a pouty face and starts to cry. Joe and I try really hard not to laugh, but we made him ask Raff to share and he did, so the tears went away.
I can see having a second child will be challenging for the first, but luckily it will be a long while before Graham wants anything Luke has, it will be the otherway around I am sure.
