The weather is finally cooling off enough and our grass is filling in nicely. We still have WAY more dirt than I'd like to have in the yard, however, I LOVE my grass patch and we are trying to make the best of what we have. The dirt is a bit frustrating. I'm hesitant to have play dates in our yard because then kids just get dirty; or there are tools out. We've talked about finding someone to pave the top portion over, but when? Keith is suppose to get a bonus for Christmas and he said we will use that to finish up the backyard. We are trying to make the best of it, but there is still SO much to do sometimes I feel very discouraged. Don't get me wrong though, I'm still VERY grateful for what we do have. I did get a little garden planted and we are getting radishes out of it. Nothing else seems to be producing or even growing much. Oh well, it's the first time.
