Yard work!

We have taken advantage of every minute of sunshine to work out in our yard. There is so much to do but I think it will all come together just fine in the end. I want to start on the inside too but when it is sunny out, what is better than pulling weeds and getting dirty? Even Lily was outside most of the afternoon- helping here and there and playing. We'll make an outdoor girl out of her yet!

Before this section was edged with rock and covered in old bark and weeds. Bleh! Now we just need a little more dirt and some plants and it will be all better!

This garden area was basically used as a yard waste pile- now it is mostly cleared and started a rock creek.

Front Yard


This was a two week project- one weekend we did the gravel and rock wall, the next weekend we laid the sod. Before it was just dirt and weeds.

Now we're just getting settled for another busy week. Martin started overtime last week and it will continue for the next couple months and I've got a bunch of work to do for the girls' school plus lots going on with my job. Kendra and Lily are doing Cheer Class on Mondays this trimester and starting Wednesday they are both going to take a series of after school classes on different countries- learning about different cultures and languages.

I bought my wedding dress last weekend. Well, I ordered it. It won't come in until May.This weekend I got the invitations mostly sorted out (a huge thanks to Briana's dad for making it happen for me!). So I'm feeling productive on that front : )

Doing good in most areas all except the housework which just didn't get done at all really. Meh. I'll get to it eventually.
