Today I was going to post about something brilliant! Too bad I didn't write it down before going to sleep. I usually remember EVERYTHING. It's shocking how much I remember. Whatever it was, would have been really good. Hopefully it will come to me another day.

Just kidding! But one can dream, right? Backyards can really be a runaway train. And we've come to realize that it all cannot be done in one summer. There will be grass, oh yes there will be grass.

I'm just thankful to have a house and finally our own yard where the kids can play. I'm excited to use the phase "go play outside kids" and enjoy a clean house for a little while. So while it may not look like this
I will be happy and content with whatever lands in our backyard Monday. We will all have to wait and see!
