Ah, but I know only too well!  Both of my sons were leaving me in their dust
by that age. But be patient, it gets beter. My oldest son now has a son of
his own and on a hike this summer my wife and I were the ones gleefully
skipping down the trail while our son and daughter-in-law lagged behind with
their heavier packs and slow, sometimes balky 5 yr old.
