On the first Sunday of the month Sian at From High in the Sky hosts Storytelling Sunday. Come join us and check out some great tales.
DH was finally able to indulge a long held desire for a Kubota tractor in May 2006.
The riding mower we’d had for 9 years broke down and would have cost more to repair than a new one. We have 3 acres of land that is mostly open field with a strip of pines at the front of the property and a cluster of various trees in one back corner.
There is a lot of grass to mow if we want to keep the bugs down.
The riding mower was adequate at the task but Dh had been longing for a tractor with a front loader ever since we rented one to dig out part of the gravel driveway. We had quite a few yard projects still to complete that would benefit from the front loader.
He brought the tractor home & unloaded it in the driveway.
The boys were all over it in a second
Havoc went straight for the steering wheel while Mayhem shouted “RAC-TOR! RAC-TOR!” as he climbed all over everything, trying out every level & button.
They were delighted when DH took them for a ride on it & from then on one or the other of them insisted on riding with whoever was mowing the grass. We have a nice flat area behind the house where we could let them steer with no danger of them hitting or running over anything. The mow job looked hideous and it took forever because we had to go so slow but they were able say they were “Dwivin rac-tor”
They’ve been too big the last couple of years to sit with us while we mow, but Havoc is almost big enough to drive it himself now. A couple more inches and he’ll be able to reach the peddle while wearing the seatbelt.
