You Might Not Believe It, but It's True.

Do you remember the tree? Yeah, the one that got struck by lightning and met its match with a chainshaw? Well we've (mostly Katie) been bothered by the stump in the ground ever since. So last Saturday we (mostly Katie) decided to dig it out. Ben was skeptical (so was Katie but she didn't mention it) but pitched in anyway. I learned how to do it by watching a Youtube video. We first dug the trench and then hacked away at the roots. Abs was great and spent a lot of the time hanging out by us in the exersaucer. Our kind neighbors across the street saw us (they probably felt bad for us as well as skeptical) and brought over saws and shovels to make the job easier. And. . .
WE DID IT! We, two lilly white handed computer nerds, successfully removed a pine tree stump from our yard. Next step: plant grass. YEA! Pics of a frontal view of the house with grass will be forthcoming.

Yay computer nerds!! Tay always says he went to law school so that one day he'll be able to pay someone to do this kind of stuff for him. Maybe you'll inspire him to reconsider. We'll call you over to help with our house projects from now on. Well, I suppose we should get a house first...

Oh Ben. Look at you! Doing all the things you refused to do for your mom all those years!!! I'm so happy you'll do it for your wife. I hope she realizes what an accomplishment this is for you!

Good job Katie!!! All the women in my family rock! We can do anything!
