Flashback Friday: Don’t Look Back
Yes, I recognize the irony in having a flashback post that tells you not to look back, but work with me here, people.
Wednesday was a first at our household. After weeks of begging, I finally relented and let my 12 year old hop on the riding mower and mow the lawn. I had mowed all the tough parts…he had no trees, no flowerbeds, no sidewalks to maneuver…just one huge rectangular spot of grass. Up. Down. Back. Forth. It was simple, really. I gave him a quick tutorial about how he needed to use the front right tire as a guide. Watch the tire. Keep it lined up with the strip that needs to be cut. Watch the tire. Watch the tire. Austin, what did I say? Watch the tire. There was no way he could fail.
