Tessa begged us to let her mow the lawn. This is her first stab at it…
…and I think it was her last time for this summer. The novelty wore off quickly and it was harder than it looked. We’ll get her back at it when she’s a wee bit older and stronger.
We free-cycled a tether ball stand from some neighbors a few blocks away. After a brief and unsuccessful attempt at getting it into the back of our van (that cement-filled tire is HEAVY!), the boys decided just to roll the thing through the neighborhood to our house.
Yea! I had been wanting to construct one of these ourselves, but this was much easier.
Walks to parks and ponds…
