I hesitate to show this picture because there is still so much to do.
BUT, look what we have accomplished!
We have a back yard.

The final island bed, complete with surrounding rock wall and subsoil filler, is complete.
The yard is raked, the rocks are picked out, and the grass seed is spread.
If we can keep the children out, we should have our first hints of grass within a week.

My, oh my, that is a lot of work!

However, if we're especially lucky, by the middle of summer 
we'll have a badminton net set up with jolly little players wacking a birdie around!
Work is a blessing.


  1. Wow! The amount of progress you have made on your yard is impressive, especially considering you are in late part of your third trimester with your eighth child! Amazing, Emily, simply amazing.

  2. Woohoo!!! You and your family are amazing...and what fun awaits you!

  3. Congratulations on such great progress! The grass will be so lovely.
