Slow and Steady Wins the Race-Right?

If that's true, then our yard may be in Gold Medal standing. The word "steady" might be a bit of a stretch here, but "slow" definitly applies! It's finally coming along and we keep trying to believe that it's very cool that we have done everything with our own two hands. But in reality lets just face it-digging in the dirt sucks. And other people want to be paid to do it :) Now the sprinklers are in-thanks to Tyler, the top soil is spread-thanks to me, and the million and one rocks are piled in a very cool rock tower -thanks to the kids. In the intrest of saving money, we spread grass seed today so EVERYBODY PLEASE, cross your fingers for our grass to grow! And maybe someday there might actually be plants and trees and sand under the playground. Slowly.

I'm amazed by people who do it all themselves. I have no desire. I have the desire to pay other people so they can have food for their family. That's it, it's really because I am so selfless, that is why I don't do anything myself.

Emily...found your blog thanks to our old roommate Lynsie. You have such cute boys--and 3 of them!! We're just a few days from having our second boy so maybe we'll catch up. Its fun to see what you've been up to. Check out our blog at

Good luck with your seed. We did that in our yard, too. And I think if the sprinklers we put in would work the way they're supposed to, then it really would be looking ok! It is really fun to see the first grass sprouts coming up and then, voila! You have sweet baby grass all over the place! It's a very exciting process. :)

Your yard is looking great! Isn't it amazing how just spreading some dirt around can make such a difference? I'll keep your grass in my prayers :)

You did a great job on the lawn! Make sure you water it at least 4 times a day for 5 min. each time.
