Water, water, everywhere.......


Amid school, finals, ortho appointments...and everyday life, we've had a little excitement here at our home this week. A friend from church came to lend his expertise to our lawn care. A sprinkler system is being installed and lots of dirt, digging, rocks, and crawling under the house to tap into the main water pipe has been the "guy" thing of the week.

My boys don't mind a little dirt, if truth be told they'd probably never bathe unless I threatened not to feed them. So, this was a "perfect week" for them! Our friend rented a trencher (ditch witch) that left minimal ruts and upturned turf, and was really loud, but fun to watch.
My heart skipped a beat when he offered to let my younger son steer the beast! He did just fine, and was quite proud of himself. I thought I took a pic of him in action, but I must have been turning away in fear.

Here are a few pics of the big day. The sprinkler heads are now in and the drips will be put in next week. Our lawn and garden are going to love the summer!.....and we will love having a smaller water bill!

I wish we had a sprinkling system. Don't know why we didn't put one in when we built the house.

Sounds like an adventure for the boys. I'm glad you're pleased with the results. - M & I have been working out in the yard/garden quite a bit too. Hard work, but great times!
