We planted our grass this weekend! We've been working on prep work for the past 2 weeks. On Friday our friends came over. The men tilled and the women weeded! My garden is ready to be planted! YAY!!!! On Saturday, the kids spent the day with Grammy while Mommy and Daddy worked for 7 hours straight! We finished everything!!! Now we are just watering 2 times a day and praying that something grows!!! Updates and pictures to come, hopefully!
