the house is coming along! last night, we put up our cedar split rail fence. it's mostly for looks, just adding a little shape to our driveway. we would like to fence in the backyard, but as of now, that is lower on the list. the front yard will be tackled next thursday. benji has four (four!) days off for the holiday weekend, and our hope is that thursday will be the day of hauling the 13-14 loads of topsoil. friday will be the day for smoothing it all out and adding fertilizer to the soil. i will likely seed the following weekend. we were hoping to go out and do something fun for the remaining days off - imagine! whether we get to the river, go on a bike ride or even just hang out as a family, this will be the time to do it!

how sad... fireweed popping up. not looking forward to it's full bloom :(
