Way too much time has passed since my last post. Life has been super busy with School and work and everything. I still have a few more papers to write before the middle of the month, so I have to spend less time with the family to get it done.
We finally had a chance to work in the yard today, moving dirt around and getting rid of the large hill of dirt in the backyard. We are trying to get rid of the bermuda grass from around the trees, and the only real way to do that is to get down to the roots, which go down around a foot. Gives me some real exercise, since I don't do anything else. :)
The point of all of this is to not have the grass grow into the tree wells, and also so we can start a garden. The kids have been really interested in planting seeds, and have planted an olive from some trees around the church. Nothing growing yet, but that is how the watermelon plant started, and that turned into a large plant. They should have fun planting soon enough.
