Our Ticket to More Play Time!

A New Mower for our fleet

Say hello to the newest tractor in our fleet.  I say fleet, because this brings our total number of blessed lawn cutting machines to a whopping three!

We really and truly don’t need three.  But, we found it on Craig’s List and decided to pick it up so that both boys can now help me mow.  They are delighted, of course. 

Well, maybe not so much.  But when we suggest selling it off again and letting one of them use the push mower, this here little machine is suddenly priceless.  And cool.  And awesome, Dude. 

It has cut down our total mowing time by another hour!  Wahoo! 

My thoughts are this, if we divide and conquer, we’ll have more time to frolic as a family (did I just say frolic??), O.K., how ‘bout play soccer…in the freshly mowed lawn. 

Working together so we can have more family play time is a finer thing!

You can check out more finer things at Finer Things Friday.

Holy Moly you must have a huge yard. Great find though.

My DH takes care of a farm that has 160 acres during the wk, and then mows grass as a side job too. Our grass at home doesn't get mowed as much as it should, maybe I should hire your crew. :)

Working together as a family is a great character builder, too. Too many people don't "let" their kids learn to work!

Seriously, how big is your lawn? It sounds like mine when I was growing up. We had a lawn tractor and had to help rake up all the piles of grass that it spit out. I think they make them better nowadays!

Looks like a great find! And fun, too!
