We did some fun things – went to the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson and we also did yard work. They helped us put mulch in the back flower beds.

Learning to mow to Papa’s specifications!!
That was only the introduction! Now let me tell what I came here to write:
I knew I would be mowing once in a while after Randy died. Michelle has mowed, Heather has mowed, Andru has mowed.
Last week it needed to be mowed. Andru wasn’t here. I’m an adult. How hard can it be, right? – just to let those of you know – I HAVE mowed before. But with a riding mower. I had many acres to mow before Wichita!
So I mowed. My yard is slanted. Uphill or downhill? depends on which way I was pushing that mower! BUT….
NO ONE EVER TOLD ME WHAT THIS LEVER IS FOR!!!
After taking about 4 trips uphill (both ways?) I had to stop to empty the grass and I was thinking “there is NO WAY I will be able to mow this whole yard without PAIN!”
Then, as I was getting ready to start mowing again – after whining for awhile – I thought, “hmmm, I wonder what this lever does.” I pulled it up and low and behold my mower took off without me pushing it….
It was done in no time with minimal effort on my part!!
A new life lesson….
