We had new sod installed in the front and the back. We're going from fescue to Bermuda grass, which is easier to maintain and which goes dormant in the winter. The guy who installed it, and who's done most of our landscaping, is a former Marine. His sons are home-schooled and are given the occasional day off from school to help their father. Today was one of those days. I think that in the long run that'll teach them more than sitting in a classroom all day will (an opinion shared by John Taylor Gatto, by the way).
Off to the office tomorrow. Hope all is well at your respective ends.
