A couple of Saturdays ago, Dan started teaching Peter how to mow the yard.
We have an acre so we have a riding mower. And we have lots of stuff to mow around: the garden, the swing set, the trampoline, the patio, the flower beds, trees, etc. You know - all the normal obstacles. And even though we have a riding mower, it's not a fancy zero turn mower so it makes navigating these obstacles ,while still ensuring that the grows gets mowed well, a little more difficult.
Dan is beginning Peter with the edges of the back yard because this is where most of the obstacles reside. He has been going behind the mower and yelling directions to Peter. It has been funny to watch but he's getting the hang of it, slowly but surely.
Here are a few picture:
With more practice, he'll be able to do the whole thing and that's going to leave Dan with a lot of free time on his hands on Saturdays!
