I’m exhausted typing this – we’ve been working hard ALL DAY. Obviously we made a lot of progress, take a look for yourself!
But a lot happened between the first picture and the second picture. Here’s the run down:
We pulled out a bunch of old tree stumps. Here you can see the boys working on it early in the morning. We ended up getting Craig’s truck and hooking up the chains to the stump and pulling them out. The boys had a blast in the truck with me.
Craig has been meaning/wanting to pull these stumps out for over a year. They came out pretty easy. Obviously we didn’t drive anywhere with the boys in the front seat and stayed in our driveway so save your mommy shaming – the boys had a blast.
TA-DA! Craig has a big vision for this area in the yard so I’m letting him run with it! I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I know that it involves shrubs and a country fence! Here you can see them working on it!
I was surprised when Craig taught Carver how to stain boards. Carver handled the responsibility very seriously and I think the more involved Carver can be the better! He was SO excited and that was the favorite part of his day!
It’s hard to see in the picture but I’m soaking wet and COVERED in dirt from power washing the algae off the side of the house, gutters, and sidewalks. I also spent a great deal of time planting the impatience along the sidewalk with Gannon while Carver and Craig worked in the garage so that was a pretty messy project – especially after I powerwashed!
While Carver was tagging along with Daddy, Gannon was tagging along with me digging in the dirt, crawling up and down the front steps, playing in the rocks and the grass, and giving lots of snuggles like this one.
So while this isn’t done yet, we are so pleased with out progress! Check it out! I so hope I can keep everything alive, it was so fun planting and picking everything out. Mom has impatience along her sidewalk and they have always been so beautiful so I kind of copied her idea:
That’s all I have for today folks! I’m so appreciative of our boys who LOVE to be outside and were so helpful today. Carver is starting to become quite the assistant as along as he is well fed with cheetoes, berry cheerios, and hot dogs! Gannon does so well outside and throws a fit whenever we have to come inside.
Thanks for reading pals! See you all tomorrow! In the meantime, feel free to catch up on the latest here:
