Sound like you're training him right by working on tractors at that young age. Keep up the good work.

Those Springfields are good tractors, can fix just about anything mechanical on them with off the shelf components (except the steering, have yet to figure that one out, and all of them have play in the steering radial gear and pitman shaft). He will be prouder of that Springfield than any other tractor, because any other tractor... isn't a Springfield lol.

Sounds like you got a good handle on the right way to raise a kid, The dirtier the better, they wash well:thumbs:
Our son had a strict 8PM bedtime, gave Kathy and I few hours of relative peace every night:smilewink:

Reminds me of when my mother's nosy neighbor said to her, "I can't believe you let your son get all dirty and nasty working on that old car." She was talking about my younger brother working on his '57 Chevy. My mother replied, "It's OK, that's the kind of dirt that washer off." My son was under the car with me when he was two years old and getting a little dirt and grease on him hasn't hurt him yet. Keep up the work, pleasure, of teaching those kids how to do things themselves, you're doing well.

Plowboy you and your son have a bond that some people can only dream about. Some of my fondest memories are when me and the boys were kicking tires and working on things together. I'm 70ish now and they have been doing fine as adults. I'm proud of them and that's all you can reasonably expect out of life.

It's great to hear he is doing well in school. Congrats, Dad for teaching them some values. The challenge will be when he discovers girls!
