Labor Day

Monday was such a fun, productive day! We worried that our plans to work at the land would have to be put on hold because of the hurricane in the Gulf. But in our neck of the woods, it was a hot, summer day. It was also Labor Day....and labor we did! We worked so hard that I am still sore two days later! It was well worth it though.

We spent the day doing yard work at the land! Most people would think we were crazy to say we had fun doing yard work. To us though, it is preparing the land for the yard to come..and that is exciting! We know that one day soon, we will have beautiful trees, flower beds and even a garden on this beautiful land.

I think Scot secretly could not wait to start mowing his own land. Here he is mowing around the perimeter of the yard. It think he was having way too much fun on that mower..can you just imagine when (if) he gets a tractor!

Although he did not mow all 5 acres, he was able to get the overgrown ditch cleaned out and the grass cut out by the road. It looks so good! I am so thankful to have such a hard working husband!

Oh, and for the most exciting part of our day! We started building.....how is that for a teaser! Check back tomorrow and I will tell you all about it!
