When I stayed with my brother David for a summer he had a phrase for packing an extreme amount of things into a small amount of time. It was called "robbing a day" because all you did should normally take two days to complete. These times often included a shortage of sleep as well. Today was one of those days. I worked 11p-7a. I picked up the rest of the family and we drove to Athens (2 hours away) to get our tractor. Apparently the best deals for this type are there! We drove back in time for Kristianna to attend her babysitting class at our church at 1 pm. We had to cut some of the grass when we returned and test out the new toy! Kris's parents helped us tow the tractor from Athens and are probably as exhausted as we are! The picture shows Kris's dad and Isabel taking a test drive. Our slab is poured, forms removed, and expansion joints are in place. Now we are almost ready for the wood!
