Early Mother's Day

Mom and Dad arrived on Thursday afternoon from Arizona. Their trip was uneventful for the most part. They drove through hail, high winds, and rain, but did not experience any car trouble. We are so happy to have them here! Since we are going to be on our trip on Mother's Day, we celebrated with Mom over the weekend by taking her to brunch at the Hilton Garden Inn. Then we took Mom and Dad out to see the house for the first time.
Mom and Dad are going to dog sit for our while we are gone. Toby and Tillie and two very lucky little critters. Susan and I do not believe we will be missed at all.

New House Updates

Changes are occurring daily now out at our new house. We try to go out every other day and take a new set of pictures to document progress.

Most of the back-fill has been completed. The front yard looks much more like a yard than it did before. There are still several mounds of dirt in the back yard.
The ground has been leveled for the garage/shop and the trench has been dug for part of the foundation. The trench doesn't show very well in this picture, but the white water pipes are sticking up out of the trench.
The septic tank is in place. Now they are working to put down all the drain field pipes and get them connected to the rest of the septic system.
