I finally got one of the kids to mow our lawn. I have always enjoyed mowing the lawn, it reminds me of mowing lawns as a kid – my first business – and I’m one of those who loves a nice lawn, especially when I’ve mowed it myself. We had services doing it for a few years but they never do a good job and charge a lot for it. So after getting rid of the latest one I went back to mowing this year.
It’s time one of the kids can put their screen down for a few minutes and learn to do some physical labor and hopefully develop pride in the results of their effort. It took weeks but Hudson eventually volunteered.
He did a good job. He went off his own tracks a little and missed a few spots but handled the mower well and it took more effort since he was afraid to use the fast self-propelled feature.
