And because this year hasn't been crazy enough, we decided to put some work into the outside of the place so it was more child-friendly.
|This is what we started with 2 years ago. Note the short forest and mud pit behind Jeremy. Those are not bushes but hundred of tree seedlings.|
|Another view...behind the crazy girl :)|
|Another neighbor and I teamed up and cut down two trees. It was very therapeutic to cut those all up...I did it all by hand over 2 weeks! This is the before.|
|And after...like, waaaay after grass was planted.|
|Before from the other direction.|
|There was so much erosion due to too much shade...|
|After! Still lots of weeds, but those will go away now that the lawn people consider this area a "lawn".|
Yay for walking barefoot outside!!
