It rained so much this summer we gave up trying to keep up with them. Faced with family coming and a new septic drain field being installed we decided it was time to tackle the front garden.
The temperatures were in the high 80's and we drank gallons of water.

|Not his idea of a good time!|
Today the drain field!
|These young men make nice lawn ornaments .... don't you agree?|
We have a lot of work ahead of us. It's okay after almost a year of having to watch every drop of water that goes down our drains and having to empty the washing machine hose out into the backyard with every load of laundry (thanks Skip) having a new septic drain field is the best Christmas gift we could give each other!
I don't have to wrap this one either!
Thanks be to God we have this chance to fix our home and be good stewards of our garden.
