What we did today

Our day got started pretty early this morning because we had a lot to do today. I've been wanting to lay sod in several places in the front and back yards for a while and our awesome neighbor was able to get a pallet of sod for me. I got started around 7:15 with an area in the front yard. It would have been a lot quicker, but I had to dig out some of the dirt so that the new grass would be level with the grass that was already there.




We also laid sod in a couple places in the back yard and filled in a big spot in the front yard that had been nothing but dirt and weeds. I finished up around 4:00 or so. Robyn helped out a bunch but we made sure that she didn't overdo it. Taylor was content to just watch from her swingset.
Maybe some day we'll have a lawn and not just a yard. And then I'll fulfill my dream of getting Yard of the Month!

Brandon has the same desire...a lawn and not just a yard.

Now that you are an experienced sod layer you can come over and help us with our front yard! (Though I have no hopes of ever claiming Yard of the Month!)
