The missing shoe is found!

April 10, 2008
Our top soil and decomposed granite has arrived. After weeks of hard work on Tyler's part, the sprinklers are done as well as the drainage system! Tyler spent so much time digging and shoveling and digging and filling in trenches and now we are ready for some new dirt! The DG, or decomposed granite is for the new pathway.

April 11, 2008 Benjamin loves helping, especially outside and in the dirt.

Can you beleive that this shoe was found?! Ben lost it in the mud during some of the digging. When Tyler was filling in the drainage trench it turned up. Even more surprising was that after I washed them, the pair is in decent enough condition to pass along to my nephews!

Now it's time to plant and lay sod, I can't wait to have a yard again!!!

I'm excited for your new yard. Tyler is awesome! Landscaping is so hard, but he looks like he semi-enjoys it at least. Home improvement projects are always a bear, but so worth it in the end. Good job guys. (The long lost shoe was pretty funny - those things never turn up! It must've been like finding buried treasure!)

Your yard is going to look amazing!! Good job guys!!! I can't wait to see the final results!!! I wonder how many buried treasures we have lost that will eventually be found by someone!! Oh we did your Family Home Evening Idea -The Book of Mormon one for FHE last night!! It was awesome!! Thanks!!

I'm glad you could use it! It came from the primary manuel 10, if you want more info for it.
