Time for a change!

When my backyard doesn't look like this:
My kids and their knees won't always look like this!




After a year and a half there is finally hope for our backyard! We built the retaining wall, just poured the concrete and are in the process of putting up the porch. Then for the grass and foliage! I have visions already!
Anyone have experience installing a sprinkler system or
have good instructional video???

Dad has these great home improvement binders on the bottom shelf of the bookcase right as you walk into the study. I know there is something on installing sprinkler systems in there. I saw it the other day. I'm so excited for you to have a back yard!

Good luck! It's great to have grass and not rocks to play on! We did it for a year and a half there also!

What alot of work. It will be so rewarding when it is finished I am sure. I am glad Anna is enjoying her room and you are enjoying better sleep now you say? Good for you, enjoy it while you can right?

How jealous I am of a backyard!! By the way- LOVE your reasoning skills with going to the Women's conference. I've even offered to pump for Marshall an entire week's worth but my answer is always no. Hmm, maybe I need to try your reasoning!!

Ouch! Just looking at those knees makes me hurts. I can't wait to see what your yard will look like when you are done.

You are a visionary woman. You also get things done. See, I have a vision of unpacking the rest of the moving boxes, but day after day they sit next to the place where their contents belong. We'd love to come over and see!!!

I think that Justin is going to miss getting scrapes and scratches. He sure does love to play back there!
