    oh mom! 😀 eric pumped it out yesterday… then raked the gravel/fill rock and today is looks ok… there is no standing water and it looks almost dry. continuing on with the plan to pick up bracing tomorrow after e is finished with work. WOOHOO! thank you for, Jesus for the SUN!!!!! (but yes, yesterday was a VERY discouraging day!)

    It looked nasty but, not really one step forward and two backwards. You are looking good. the gravel packed down like you did is great. It’ll dry fast. And hard. Ready to work on. We’ll be tripping all the time because we will still be trying to step over the mounds of dirt. With nothing to step over we’ll fall…

    I agree with Dad this still looks like HUGE improvement!! Soon it will all be a fog and you will be busy working inside! 🙂
