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.
