Sunday Snapshot~Rite of passage

My youngest son always wants to ride on the lawn mower. Being the protective mom that I am I have always said ok you can ride on it with dad as long as the blade is not engaged. I knew he couldn't actually mow the grass until he was heavy enough to sit on the seat and keep the motor running. So far, the motor has always died because he did not weigh enough. I thought we've got plenty of time for that!!!

 Well, this year he is big enough...and he is thrilled...cause Dad says when the kids are old enough  to keep the motor engaged they are old enough to cut grass!

Is that my baby? IS he really old enough to cut the grass?
He has the shades, Billy's old cap that was given to  Zach before Billy died. It's the official grass cutting hat.
Dad cuts a pattern...and Shek cuts all the grass inside the box. 
My Hard workin' Man!
 I think Dad is glad that he has another grass-cuttin' trainee! Karl grew up on a farm and I had a childhood spent at Honey's and The we are used to wide open spaces...but in the summer, that grass cutting can be time consuming! And  with Zach's busy schedule...Karl needs another grass cutter!
There he goes! Cutting grass into the horizon...I hope the new doesn't wear off of his new found-chore...the one he has waited his whole life for!

  1. My kiddos (especially the y-chromosomal ones) would give away their sisters to be able to do this! How fun for him!
    Nancy-of the crazy 8

  2. Isn't it crazy how fast they grow? And also crazy how every little boy thinks mowing the grass is SO cool! My son can not wait to mow the grass at my parents house : ) So sweet! I loved this post!

  3. looks like fun...and I can't stand mowing!
