bits of progress

  A whole lot of side work has been going on in the Hanson household lately. Side work for other people, that is. Jeremy has been very busy making furniture for clients on the side, so we mostly have been doing little jobs here and there on the house. We've got all new water lines (yeah!), drained both ponds out, demoed the small pond, cut two backyard trees down, and discovered a brick patio underneath a layer of grass. That has been my project this past weekend. I got to tell you, it has been very satisfying to unveil something that has been hidden. All I need to do now is fill in the empty sections where the small pond used to be.

    I am so grateful for such a large backyard where our kids can explore, discovering new bugs, get covered in mud and see where their imagination takes them. Ruby has been going through Jeremy's scrap wood piles to create things like fishing poles, a bridge, slides, and much more. Now if it could just be sunny everyday, I could get things done a lot quicker!
