Our backyard consists of mostly dirt and weeds, a bit of scraggly grass, and a few flowers that I have managed to plant. I feel as though I am always out there working and slaving and nothing really ever changes. (By the way, I hate salt grass!!) Thank goodness Jake had a bit of time yesterday to work on sprinklers. I'm hoping that the fixed sprinklers will help the scraggly grass become luxurious grass. Fixing sprinklers reqired Jake to dig little holes all over. He used shovels and rakes and tarps and a pickaxe. Having tools laying all over really entices kids to cart them off and copy exactly what thier dad does with them. DIG. The kids dug and dug. (almost to China.) What did they end up with? They ended up with a hole. A GIANT hole.
It, of course, wouldn't be right to just leave the giant hole empty. It, of course, needed to be filled. With, of course, water. So it was.
