There Goes Yard of the Month!!


So I now know one good thing about David not coming home until Saturday afternoon - it will give the yard a chance to grow out! I had to break down and mow the lawn today. It's not a good thing. David wasn't able to do it before he left, and it was getting a bit out of control. I don't consider myself a "wimpy" girl - leaving all the "manly" chores to David, but he does always take care of the yard stuff. (Sue, I know you are more woman than me - I remember you mowing your yard while you were 8 months pregnant!) Anyways, I contemplated putting a sign in the yard to say "Excuse the long grass - husband gone for 2 weeks and wife too busy with 3 kids to mow", but decided that probably was not a very "safe" idea! So after we got home from my workout at the gym and Josiah's swimming lessons, I put Callie down for her nap and got out the lawn mower. I won't even tell you how many yanks it took me to get it started (I do use weights at the gym - what's my problem?), but we got going and the lawn got cut. I know I did it all wrong and the lines look terrible, but it's done with. And at least David won't be home until Saturday, so by then it should grow out enough to not be so noticeable!!! Enjoy the picture - Josiah took it!


PS - Both boys sat on the driveway eating their juice popsicles that I had made for them while I mowed. They looked at me like I had 3 heads or something. They love to help David when he does it - but they thought I looked ridiculous apparently. Pretty funny.

This is hilarious! I wish I could have been there to witness it! I tried to mow the grass once in VA with Anthony and I think I made it across the lawn twice before he said he would take over! :) I'm so proud of you for getting out there and getting it done! David will be so proud, no matter how it looks! That's like two workouts in one day! Way to go! :)

That's awesome! I wondered what you said with the boys while you mowed--glad they enjoyed their popsicles enough to stay out of your way and not get and toes run over!! David might notice, but hopefully the thought behind it all.

Yay for women who can mow their own lawn! I am sure your hubby will be impressed. Popsicles can work wonders, huh?

Good photography by the way!
