Little Men Who Mow

Check this out!

Little men that mow!

Aren’t you entirely jealous!

His daddy has been waiting for this moment for many years.

(I’m still waiting for them to take up ironing.)

No, it’s not a petrol mower.  It’s a push power mower.

I bought it ages ago with this very thing in mind.

It just took them longer than I expected, to be muscly enough to push it.

It’s still hard work though.  Our yard isn’t a small one and it’s got a decent slope to it as well.

But lots of afternoons, you can find both boys out there, taking turns to mow sections of the yard.

And they do it for fun!

They’ve even roped friends into giving it a go and they enjoyed it too.

These homeschooled kids certainly are strange.

    I would have said: ‘send them over here’ but then I remembered we’ve got fake grass front and back! We love it. No time for gardening with homeschooling 🙂

      I looove the idea of fake grass. But all the birdies who wander our yard and the bees who pollinate our weeds would be very distressed. 😦

      Oh you must have missed my ploy. Mowing is actually P.E.!! So technically I could send them outdoors for an hour or so each week and call it homeschooling. 🙂
