Derick; several years back i was at the two cylinder show at Fairview Oklahoma visiting with a much older Mennonite friend. He pointed out proudly His 8 year old Grand son that was running an old model R John Deere around the grounds unescorted. This Young man was all buisness and entirely worthy in action of the trust He was given. I never have seen anyone more careful in handling moving iron. Your Girls remind me of these folks as they are showing to be all buisness. Thanks for the fotos and please do keep them coming.

Derick, the tractor fits yall well :!: I am so happy to see your girls being exposed to and interested in such a large variety of things instead of being totally entertained by social media and the technological world. Your girls are learning how to get much more out of life than most kids their age. :D

I am so proud of my girls its hard to express....its not all for their ability o handle the tractors so well either, its for understanding what they mean. My girls both know why tractors exist, they know that they helped to grow ythe food that feeds us, they know that some of our tractors were used in the very fields that surround our home. Most importantly they respect them for what they can and cant do, my girls know they arent toys and that can kill if used improperly. They both drive them with a good amount of skill and the utmost respect, they are proud that they can handle this old iron and you can see it in their faces in the videos I post. When you consider that they are only 5 and 7 right now....I have to be the proudest father I know :D

I don't think anyone can say it better, Jim. It's sad to be enjoying an evening with MrsMassey in a local restaurant and see a family of four, each poking and sliding their fingers around on four different cell or I-phones. :cry:

My girls get supervised computer time for kids games, mostly educational but some fun but no cell phones no game boys or hand held stuff at this point. Theres too much to see in this beautiful world to get lost in a screen, I'm very happy with my girls scholastically and common sense wise. I asked Thel today if she was saving her money to buy another John Deere and she replied no. I asked her if she wanted to buy me out on the A or be partners? She said we should be partners until I teach her how to drive it completely and maybe then she would, but she preffered to stay partners. I wanted to cry I was so happy :)
