Since Mom wants a post, I thought I'd post the pictures of our awesome new sod. I love it. We can't really play on it for a month. Mike woke up at 6:45 and started prepping the ground. At 9 I came out and began helping him. Just as we laid the first roll of sod the neighbor boys came in the backyard and asked if they could help. I worked until 9 until 12 and then I had to shower because Will and I were off to Denver with a friend. At 12 we had laid almost the entire lawn--I actually laid the majority of this. Mike was still raking the dirt and the boys were bringing the sod from the pallets in the front to the back. We were both really sore the next day. Mike finished the rest after I left at 1--I'm not sure how much longer he worked after I left.
Anyway, we all love it and Diamond acts like it's the best thing in the world. We still have some other landscaping to do back there but it looks so much nicer.
