It’s not every day that an eleven year old is spotted mowing the grass at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
President Donald Trump just helped a young boy prove that age is no obstacle when it comes to achieving your dreams. Along with the many changes Trump brought to the White House, he started a new tradition. The White House reads children’s letters out loud these days, and one of those letters came from a little boy named Frank.
Frank was 10 when he wrote the letter. In it, he asked if he could mow the White House lawn. In fact, he was so excited for the opportunity, he offered to wave his customary $8 fee.
The letter read:
It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend for you. Even though I’m only ten, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for. I admire your business background and have started my business. I have been mowing my neighbors’ lawns for some time. Please see the attached flier. Here’s a list of what I have and you are free to pick whatever you want: power mower, push mower, and weed whacker. I can bring extra fuel for the power mower and charged batteries for the weed whacker. I will do this at no charge.
Sarah Sanders, who originally read Frank’s letter to the public, was thrilled to see Frank in action.

It looks like the Parks Department may even have a little competition. Frank was so busy that he barely stopped for a conversation with the President. He was all business behind the lawnmower.
President Trump admires go-getters, especially when they come in such young packages. And according to Sarah Sanders, it was Trump’s honor to host Frank and his family at the White House.
After he got the yard mowed, Frank had the privilege of visiting Trump in the oval office. When asked how he felt about the day, Frank said it was “pretty much the best day of my life.”
