The boys decided to bring in reinforcements to help move around some of the logs...enter the skid-steer! The big boys used it to move logs to the front of the property to be hauled away to the lumber yard, and the little boys used it simply to put a huge smile on their faces.
Several more trees came down this weekend. The thick canopy has now been opened and sunlight happily rests on our build site. Now when you walk out there, you can clearly see "Oh, that is where the driveway will be...and there's the house site." It has been fun imagining how everything is going to end up.
Cody wanted to take the boys out to snap a picture with the stump of one of the biggest trees that fell this weekend. Callen was all too excited to see the baby snakes, Arlo couldn't wait until it was his turn in the skid-steer, and Jade clung tightly to me.
We ended our weekend celebrating Chloe's 16th birthday at the lake. I'd say the boys had a blast!
Cody and I were born and raised in tiny towns ten minutes from one another in Southern Indiana. We met through youth group, fell in love, and moved away to start our lives together. Nearly ten years and three beautiful baby boys later, it’s finally time to move home! Follow along on our journey as we build our forever home; a barndominium.
