Ooops! Lawnmower Got Too Close To The Creek

My husband and son were on the four-wheeler and said, "Jump on Kathi, we may need your help. The lawnmower got too close to the creek. Let's go get Harrison as well."
"Harrison, we need your help. Drop what you are doing and come help us."
"Ooops. The mower is about two inches from sliding in. Maybe the four wheeler can pull it out."
Stacey tries.
Harrison tries. All the while, Mom (me) has the camera and can see exactly how many inches it has slid toward the creek.
Mom says, "I think you need either the tractor or the truck to do the job." No one took my picture (that's the way it goes with us bloggers), but we used the tractor to secure it, and I drove the truck from up near the top of the steps and pulled the lawnmower to safety. All in a day's work. I know I have not been to visit you ladies. I really want to and hope to tomorrow. Have a nice evening. Kathi "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." Phil. 4:13

Well, that's exciting.
I wouldn't happen to have a tractor handy when my lawnmower got stuck....

woah that was a close one! it's so cool that you all have so many different machines to use in situations like these. living on so much land must be so much fun.

Same here, I'm always the one taking pictures so there is hardly any pictures of me.
Oh, wow Kathi you guys were so lucky to not have had your tractor go in the river. It takes a woman to figure things out (lol).
I'm glad all is okay.

Wow, I'm glad you got it out before it slid all the way in! I haven't been around a lot either lately. Life's gotten in the way with my son Nicholas' wedding next month and Travis getting ready to leave for two years on a mission for our church. Insanity around here! Cindy

Having all that land and the farm comes with some work, doesn't it? Whew! To answer your question...I worked full time through the birth of my fourth son too which was only 17 months later! When he was born I went to two twelve hour days a week (night shift) and then when he was one God worked it out for me to quit. It was a HUGE step of faith. Thanks as always for your visits and kind comments on my blog. Blessings sweet sister!

Wow! I'm so happy that you didn't lose the mower! It's neat that the whole family came together to help! You are so blessed to live on the farm!

Love, Shar
