And here’s another reason I mow with the manual push mower.
The kids can come outside and play while I’m mowing. I don’t have to worry at all about an errant rock or stick flying and hitting anybody.
Both Newbie and Superman enjoyed filling their supersoakers from my high school era and duking it out.
Little Miss, meanwhile, just enjoyed being outside. It was a rough and hot summer so I think she just appreciated not having anything to worry about out there.
