Dern Tuckered Out

Today was all about land clearing…

We had been hacking away at this pile for a few days and finally today we got to the bottom of it. Beneath the sticks were trees, cinder blocks, rocks, leaves and an intricately braided arrangement of thorny briars. I snapped a metal rake just trying to get through it…bummer for the rake, awesome for my self-esteem.

Thank you to Ryan’s dad, mom and Soleil for raking leaves, sawing logs, collecting rocks, and overall kicking butt.  So far, this land has given us firewood, old handmade bricks, the lost ruins of an ancient city, and a great workout. Thanks land.
