Tearing out an old lawn, replacing sprinklers, and putting in a new lawn is messy business. The kids and I have missed being able to play in the backyard, but visions of green grass keep dancing through my mind. Last week Matt was working hard on the yard... and I mean hard (every day after work and all weekend long), getting it all smoothed out, the sprinklers replaced, leveled, etc. I brought the kids out and watered my garden and in the process Alayna got quite muddy. I didn't care since it was nearly bath time anyhow. Let's just say the girl is definitely not afraid of dirt!
