For the past month and a half, our (and by "our" I mostly mean Kevin's) big project has been trying to get the front yard in. He built a retaining wall all the way around the front, put in his flagpole, and spent countless hours evening out the yard with the skid steer, bringing in topsoil, and raking it smooth. Some might say he's been a little obsessed with getting it as smooth as possible, but I'm not complaining - it's turning out great! We finally have seed down, so I'll post another picture when we have a nice green lawn. And I have to plant all of our trees, shrubs, and flowers so I'd better get to work.
This summer we signed Andy up for a little soccer league. It's very informal, and Andy is on the 3-4 yr. old team with his cousins Ty and Avery. They have a lot of fun - that's all that matters! Andy really likes being the goalie. Daisy was very sad that she didn't get a uniform and didn't get to play. It was hard to keep her from running onto the field. She hates being left out.
(Andy's uniform is sooo big on him. I don't know when that kid is going to start growing.)
