We continue, slowly, making progress on our front yard. A good section of it has been tilled up and we've figured out roughly how much dirt we need to haul in. Charlie will be borrowing a truck from a friend this weekend - a nice big diesel that can haul 2 yards of dirt at once, and has a dump bed so he can just back up into the yard and dump it where we can just rake it down instead of in the street where it would have to be hauled up into the yard by wheelbarrow.
The bricks you can see stacked up here aren't permanently in place; we'll have to move them to dump the dirt on Sunday. But it gives you an idea of what our wall will look like when it's done!
