The hard part is finished. Finally... I am sure Kris will post pics soon, but the stone patio is done. After the third trip to HD for more sand (36 bags total), I finished screeding and levelling the patio area last night. I then started setting my stones. I finally finished at about 10:30 last night. I admit for a first timer it looks pretty good. I do have to find some gravel or something to fill the cracks between the stones, but thats easy stuff. I also am going to pour a concrete berm at the end of the pavers to help prevent washout of the sand. But IT LOOKS GOOD.

Lots of fun

I know its been a bit. Kris has kept you up on most things though. Finally almost done with the front yard. The grass is also getting to be a much richer green color. Been working with E on his mowing skills. His bike riding skills are improving greatly. E officially graduated from cub scouts to boy scouts last night. He received his Arrow of Light last night. This is the Highest award a cub scout can obtain and the only cub scout award that can be on his boy scout uniform. J got his tiger cub badge last night so he will officially be a wolf next year. He is so proud of himself. C gets to be a tiger next year. Kris even got a ribbon for her assistance. K is still lovin ballet. L wants to do everything everyone else does. The unborn is kicking I hear. I start my training next Wednesday night. Day Camp starts next week.
