Keeping Busy

We added a rock wall to the front of our yard

With the exception of this corner.  We had put this in shortly after we moved here.

Two and one half yards of dirt later.

It looks like this.

We are going to remove the front beds and the porch railing and extend the cement pad by about three feet.

Shayleen and Olivia planting boxwood.

Olivia really took over the boxwood planting.

There really was not much for Darius to do except torment everyone with his water gun.

Before long, Olivia was digging the holes for the boxwood.

Brystan is taking a breather from digging.

Gramma and Darius are overseeing the project.

One tree hole dug.  Good thing most of the dirt was the soft easy topsoil we had just put in.

Darius finally got his hands on a shovel and is digging too.
I am trying to stay busy as much as possible.  That way I do not think.  Today, the kids and I worked on our front yard.

I love having readers of my blog. I really love comments!! But being spammed 2X's on one post is a bit much. Bye Bye to both of you. Come back when you have something interesting to say.
