"Goodby FOREVER!"

Today I bid farewell (and good riddance) to the dirt pile an general lumpiness of our yard. I can't profess enough my deep gratitude to our friend's Dad who owns a tractor and came to grade our yard for us today. He refused any payment for his service whether by money or deed. But I'm sure we will find a way to show him how grateful we are. Thank You thank you thank you Bob! Here is how it looks today:

Isn't what you don't see wonderful in this picture?!!
Our boy hard at work. Better get him a Slurpee when he is done.:)

I can't wait until the day I can actually sit in our yard and watch my babies play in the grass. I generally watch them play in our neighbors yards.
In case you forgot what it looked like, I found this picture from about 2 1/2 years ago (there are no trees). I am so glad to be rid of this dirt pile that has adorned our yard for two and a half years!

I can just picture how beautiful it will look with new grass. Until then....patience, my dear, patience.

How exciting! I seriously don't know how I ever lived without a backyard. I think my kids would die without it too. I can't wait to see your beautiful new lawn someday.

Nice start we will look forward to seeing the new beauty when we get home.

The littlest things go along way and make the biggest difference. Looks great so far.
