Great story Jim, I am a big beliver in positive reinforcement, when mine were young, I told them every day that they could do anything in the world they wanted to as long as they got an education, there was no stopping them.
I remember my mother telling me not to tell them they were the best, the greatest, the world was there's all they had to do was believe in themselves.
They believed me. Just as your 5 year old knew he could, and settings that goal, priceless. You should be very proud.
Great work dad, and great work son.
