Yard day

Jesse taking over the raking

Seth playing the piano with his goggles on (not sure why)!

We planned today to do some work around the house. First off, Stu checked our cistern and discovered we were almost out of water again. With the lack of rain the city hasn't been sending water in very often. So with the cistern almost empty he decided to crawl down in there to get a padlock out that had fallen in some time ago. While he was in there he found something that needed to be fixed, so that took him most of the morning. Then we had to order a truck of water. That costs us around $40. The main thing we needed to do today was to spread dirt over our grass. Over time the rain washes the dirt away to wear there is only coral, so you have to spread dirt over the grass to fall through to build it back up. Not sure how well I explained that, but hopefully you get the picture. We had called for a truck of dirt in the morning and they said it would be here after lunch. It finally came around 3:30, so we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening working in the dirt! Stu was filling the wheelbarrow and dumping it on the grass, I was spreading it with a rake and Delayna was busting up the clumps. After a while Delayna started filling the wheelbarrow and Jesse decided to rake. I attached pictures but I'm not sure why they are at the top instead of under the writing. The yard looks horrible right now, but hopefully we will get some rain this week and it will be back to normal soon. When we finished that we had a fire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. It wasn't exactly the family day the girls had in mind, but we spent it together! :)
