Sod! Glorious sod! (my knees and back ached for days after these photos were taken.)

The beginnings of getting our yard back.  Gotta love the sod.  Not so much the kneeling in the mud and dirt while putting it in.

Getting the ground ready for the new sod.  Please don't report us for our child labor law violations

And when the time came to take down the fenced play area, the boys got in on that act too.

Apparently frustrated by the slow progress, Big Dog decides to pitch in and dig.

The boys have become very comfortable in the construction zone.  Perhaps a bit too comfortable...

The north yard has been backfilled and Dave set the boys to work collecting large stone from the fill.  Our hope is to use these to make a stone wall somewhere in the yard.  In the photos under the house, look how much headroom Dave has created!  When we started, the best headroom in the basement still caused Dave to bang his head on the floor joists regularly.

Removing cribbing piles, climbing dirt piles...all part of a normal weekend in our house.
