It's been so fun to discover the things we have growing in our yard.
These little guys like our yard too.
So now, whenever Charlie walks out the door and sees the gnomes, he pulls the "Juliet" gnome out of the ground and throws her down on our driveway. Her head has been broken off and glued back at least 4 times now. I'm pretty sure he does it just to tick Avery off.
And it works.
He's a tender, gentle lamb, my Charlie Boy.
Should you be tempted to feel the slightest bit of jealousy over my lovely front yard, allow me to take you on a tour of the back.
This is our super awesome pool.
That's filled with super awesome frogs.
And surrounded by our super awesome dilapidated fence...
Which a gigantic, super awesome tree branch is lying across.
That's still there after our last crazy bought of super awesome storms.
Bottom line: It's a hodge podge, crazy nightmare of a pool.
A breeding ground for Botulism and the Black Plague.
And it must go.
Next year. When we have more money.
But for now, we've decided that we'll just clean it, cover it, and pretend it doesn't exist.
So that my kids don't get Malaria this summer.
We've been working like crazy around this place to get things in order and livable. Look for pictures soon.
