Rich and Julie are letting us use their snowmobile for the rest of the winter. Today Sam got permission from Mitch to ride it by himself around the yard. He drove it for about an hour straight, and would still be out there if Mitch wouldn't have told him to stop and come in and eat and rest (he's sick with a cold). He's wearing a hockey helmet. Nobody told him he had to (because the trail is tree and obstacle free and he doesn't go more than 10 mph). He just thought it was prudent. Smart boy!
