So, Ted calls me on the cellphone tonight...

and tells me to come outside with my camera. This is what I find:

Yes. She's REALLY driving the skid steer. This isn't a 'stop and make it look like she's running the controls' picture. I had to keep jumping out of her way so not to get run over! When driving forward she would say, "dumping the dirt..."


And backing up... Ted watches to make sure she's not going to hit anything.
She'd say, "Backing up, beep, beep, beep!"

Look at that grin when she stops and I make a big deal about her driving! Don't mind her 'dirt mustache'... she was playing in the dirt before moving it around with the skid steer!

This could be my husband & daughter in a few years. Sophia's big grin & Lydia's really are quite similar. I dragged my husband in here to look, and he read every word. He's probably a tad jealous of the skid steer, though.

This is too cute for words! I love her narration too. Looks like she may have found her future occupation ;-)
