The Transformation

On Saturday, the first steps were taken for us to finally have a yard. We have lived in our house now for about a year and we have not had a yard. Well, I guess we did it was just full of weeds and holes. So, anyways, the elders quorom came over bright and early Saturday morning and went to work scraping the top layer of the grass off, cutting down the apple tree, and moving LOTS of dirt around the yard to try and make it more even. The yard looks amazing and all it is right now is a bunch of dirt. But, it is a beginning! Cooper had so much fun getting to play in the dirt. I don't think I have ever seen him this dirty before. He had mud caked on his pants and his shoes. I still haven't gotten his shoes clean yet! Cooper was also in love with the tractors that they had brought in. Even Sara loved them! I just want to say thank you so much to everyone that came over and helped us! We really appreciate it!

Yea for back yards! Oh. Someone already said that. Oh, well. It deserves to be said twice. I moved to have a backyard once. Totally worth it.
