This weekend, after 3 long days of work, we got our sod laid and our swing set put up! I am so excited because now that the weather is getting nicer, the girls have somewhere to go and play. We still have a long way to go before our outside is finished, we are going to lay bark in all of the planter beds, and hopefully get some trees put in. Unfortunately because of finances, we will probably not be getting any flowers or shrubs this year, but what we have is so much better than dirt! Also, we are planning a garden, and Allan already has starts in my windows for peppers and pumpkins and watermellon. If he can keep them alive until after memorial day when we can move them outside, we will be in really good shape.
