This is what the boys got done on Tuesday. From the angle of the picture the pile looks smaller but it was really pretty big. We were holding our breath hoping it would get picked up with the Wednesday recycling. And it did.
By the way, did I mention that we don’t have to pay for trash services here? The city covers it.
While Ryan and I were at the store yesterday the kids, all 7 of ’em (okay, I can’t say for certain that Jesse actually did much), worked hard and got this done – with Kait as the ring leader. We have 1 regular and 1 toddler picnic table and the house came with a picnic table. So the kids busily raked and cleared for a couple of hours and created a picnic area for us. Ryan and I had planned to spend a couple hundred on pea gravel or similar playground material for the area but after the kids were done we were quite pleased with the leaf-less ground.
I can’t believe how soft the ground is. Once the leaves, twigs, and weeds were pulled up it felt so good on my bare feet. We’re just going to border off the area and leave it. Instead of paying for the ground cover we’re going to put that money into stringing up some cheesy lights to make it more entertain-ready.
That means all you peeps will have to come for a visit! You can’t let all my kids’ hard work go to waste, now.
I smell bacon.
Time to get off the computer.
