Been waiting to steal these off my folks camera. My little boy is 3 years old and can out work most teenagers. He loves working on any project with his dad which makes me very proud.

Nothing to be sorry about that I can see. That is absolutely a super way to bond with your son. Keep it up . :thumbs:

That sort of thing is great! Keep the pics coming.

Now you're making me wish I'd taken pictures of my 13 y-o son helping me replace a heat exchanger yesterday. He decided to go do the job with me at the last minute, then I found out it was because he wanted to get paid with an I-tunes gift card!! He did great though, both dis-assembling and and re-assembling things.

that brings back lots of memories as I have worked with sons and grandsons on prodjests in the past. I have a few pictures, but a lot of good memories.

Thanks guys.......just need to get cranking on the motor and get it put on there. Running out of decent weather around here quickly.......heck he might just get his maiden voyage on that machine with a little snow on the ground. These memories are priceless to me, just glad we are able to do it with no regrets!

Love the pics! I'd get that kid a pair of safety glasses and teach him to wear them when in the shop. I don't let my daughter come in the shop without them. Love the little gloves though. Just got my hands on a C-125. Getting it mechanically in shape for now, but will probably be doing some paint in the spring. Came with a plow and a mower deck. Need to find the belt sizes for the mower (PTO to front pulley and front pully to mower pulley). Keep up the great work with the boy.
