I mentioned how things have been crazy. More details to come...but for now I'll show you one of our many projects lately.
A few weeks ago 6 pallets of sod were delivered to our house. We worked hard hand digging trenches to install sprinklers earlier this spring, and now it was time to get the grass growing. The delivery truck was supposed to come to our house last...we ended up being the first stop. It wasn't even 1pm, and Mr. Pickup wouldn't be home until after 6pm. So, it was up to me to get as much done as I could before the sod dried out. Once Baby was down for her nap, Little Boy and I got our work gloves on and dug in.
Here's our side yard before sod.
I got 2 pallets down before the older children got home from school. We quickly finished after Mr. Pickup arrived home.
Although it was dirty, exhausting work, there is something so satisfying about seeing instant lawn. I highly recommend it over a weed-filled backyard.
On a personal note, thank you for all your prayers for my parents. We were miraculously able to get my dad into a specialist that was booked out until mid summer. Mom made it through her surgery yesterday with flying colors. My parents have a long road to go, but there are definite good things going on. These tender mercies are great reminders that God does know us, and is answering prayers. Thank you.
