Sprinklers are just about there

We have been working really hard the last few weeks on getting our sprinklers in.  We had a great friend who helped us trench it, and my parents came up on a Saturday and then every night we would work on it.  What a hard job.  I really thought I was strong but putting these in makes me realize that I'm not that strong because I couldn't do this everyday for a living.  It really gives you an appreciation for those that do construction or landscape everyday for their livelihood.
Summer so far has been--lets get these done so our grass doesn't dry.  Well they are now in and watering regularly and it is amazing!  Now the job is to get the trenches looking right.  There are some places that are still too high and other too low.  So we got a wheelbarrow yesterday and started moving the dirt around.  So much fun!  The great thing about all this is it really makes the kids have an experience of working together as a family.  For the most part they have been great sports about it.  We don't try to kill us all off and do little bits at a time.  They have been great at getting cold drinks.   Conrad is getting good at making lemonade.  =)
