May 23, 2008 – Oil Change Girl

Ok, farm girls need many skills! One of group of skills consists of basic mechanical and maintenance tasks.

It was time to have Emma do her first oil change. An oil change is a big step in a young teen’s life, if nothing else, to get to do something very few of her classmates have done. Here she is grasping the oil drain plug while she watches the old oil pour out of the oil pan.

The oil filter coming off is always messy!

Finally adding the new oil. We even let Emma try to work the clutch in the yard a few times to get ready to drive in a few years!
