That's cute.  The little ones seem braver than some adults.  Good for you, Dad !!  Have fun with him.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

The other day he tryed catching a bee on a dutch clover head and got stung. Thought that would put an end to the whole thing but all he did was squeal for about half a second scraped the stinger out before I could get to him and looked at me and said I guess that means I can only hold boy bees. I busted out laughing. You could see where the stinger got him just a little spot the size of a mosquito bite and in a hour or so not even that. Boy was I releived. He's almost five and at times a little to fearless. I think he is definitly one of the next generation of beeks he seems to have the bug bad already.

I have very similar pictures of me helping out with my Dad's hives some 40 years ago. It was a fantastic experience for me then and I have never forgotten it! My Dad, now in his 80's, comes out to my place on occasion and both he and my son help work my bees.....takes me right back to childhood. I don't think there's a better bonding time ( other than maybe the first hunt).
Keep it up, it gets even better in fourty years!
Peace be yours,
Scott

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Great picture, its a wonderful thing to pass on to kids.

Scott, you ought to get some more pics of you and your dad with the bees, and you, your dad and your son with the bees and frame them all together.
There pictures your son will appreciate someday.

I recently took pictures of my 7 year old son who is the youngest beekeeper in our bee club with the oldest  beek in the club who is 84 years old, it was at a field day and its a great picture.
I love that kind of stuff.

Love the pic of your little guy especially the ear to ear smile on his face.  Sounds like he is already learning the difference between queens, workers and drones.  Good job teaching him.
