Working Outside

The last few weekends, for the most part, have been really nice so we've been trying to finish our outdoor projects.  Matt and I have lived in this house for seven years.  We are finally finishing up the landscaping.  The north side of our house had none.  We dug (okay Matt did) up bushes and plants and moved some around.  We found some beautiful ones as well at various stores.  It looks beautiful and I can't wait to see how it looks in the next couple of years. 
Minah is such a good helper.  They all are but she really liked watching us do yard work.  She watched us tear up sod, haul it, clean it up, bag it, dig bushes, plant them, mulch, etc and she wanted to help.  She found my shovel and started moving sod.  She was so proud of herself.  Jacob and Chloe loved being outside so they could play with their friends and weren't quite so interested in planting and that was okay.  Our garden is doing well and we have lots of beautiful sunflowers.  I picked one and the girls loved examining it and thought it was so interesting!  We've had a really great summer that is moving into a really great fall.
