Mom, dad, Naomi, Doug, Naomi’s mom and Aaron helped dig trenches last weekend for our sprinkler system. It was back breaking work! Especially on the downhill side. I’m still recovering from surgery so I took care of Lucy and took photos of the progress.
Special delivery from Woods Nursery
Blanche Wood gave us a Dogwood tree as a housewarming/baby gift so that the tree grows as Lucy grows. It was an incredibly thoughtful gift.
The guy from Woods Nursery dug a hole in the front yard for the tree. We’re going to put a bean shaped curbing around it when we’re ready to do the curbing on the house.
This was the most difficult and dangerous part of the trenching. This is alongside the left side of the house which has an extremely steep grade. It took all hands on deck to get the trencher up the hill.
Everyone is pulling and leaning to make sure the 500 pound machine doesn’t tumble down the hill
