Mowing the Grass

Matthew has come home from school the past 2 days and asked to mow the grass. This is him today... hard at work!

Ever since Matthew was about 18 months old, he has had an incredible interest in all things pertaining to yard work. He and I used to sit out on the balcony of our 3rd floor apartment and watch the men mow the grass below. He got his 1st toy lawnmower for his birthday when he was 2 years old and we lived in New York. "Uncle" Dean got him a real, working backpack leafblower (it was semi-homemade and electric... not gas!) for Christmas when he was 4 years old. The kid just loves wheelbarrows, weedeaters, all lawn tools, etc... Maybe he'll have his own lawn service one day! =)

Your kids are incredible. If I had a lawn I would have Alex mowing it......alas, no lawn after 5 years, but the woods are great!!!
