Today the boys helped me clean up the yard and move things around. We went through the pile of wood that had been in a heap since our move last year. We stacked it nicely inside our new backyard fence where Billy will one day build a roof over it :)
Once the wood pile was gone, I hacked away all the weeds and raked up the bark and dead grass. I started a new burn pile out in the field between us and the neighbors. Then I pushed our newest "toy" over to the cleared ground under the tree. (Thank you Paulson family for all your hand me downs!)
I also moved the cupboards and Rubbermaid shed from the side of the house. I raked the ground and put the picnic table and bench there instead. The boys said it looks WAY better :) I think so too.
The one thing I didn't end up doing was washing the car! I suppose I am helping conserve water during our drought, but it's really time to wash that white paint. Maybe tomorrow.
