Christmas time! Our big Christmas present this year was A NEW TRACTOR! The boys shopped around, and we ended up accepting delivery of this beauty this week.
Talina and Megan got lessons in driving it today, and we took it into the Neutral Zone to play around with knocking down some of our standing dead trees. Much better than cutting them down, which would have left a stump to mow around forever. Plus, fun!
Our new toy is a pretty small one, so there will likely still be projects for which our neighbors larger tractors will be more appropriate. But as a good, easy assist around the farm, I think we have only just begun to discover the ways this little guy will be useful!
