It all started in 1997 when I fell in love with this boy in Ag class.
After High School we had big plans; get married, build a log cabin and fill it with lots of babies. (Okay, so I had plans to fill it with at least 4-6 babies but he said 1. We compromised and stopped at 3! Phew! LOL!)
In May of 2001 we were driving down backroads and came across a house with a barn that was for sale. I remember saying "Oh, it's so cute! I love it!" It was small but it was just what we were looking for.
I also insisted we needed a sandbox for them to play in since the one up by our house gets used SO much! After some contemplating on how to make one (and keep it free) it dawned on me :: a tractor tire! My grandparents had one that we played in for years. A quick call to a friend and we now have a sandbox! Score!
And last but not least, a swing. The kids all voted on a simple rope swing with a knot. Perfect & easy! A call to another friend (whom my hubby likes to give a hard time to for keeping things; but who also within minutes came through on the rope!) For real, friends are the best & our kids as well as theirs are going to have SO much fun on all of this when we camp! I can't wait for this weekend!
Once the boys got home from school we started on the fence building. Yet another project I asked to get started and Aaron is making happen. He's pretty amazing.
We got the fence posts finished and ready to stretch the wire.
It was a beautiful, productive day & I'm thankful for every moment.
