2010 Projects


Beginning of last year, after reading Terri's list we made a list of things we wanted to accomplish on our property. My list isn't quite as long as hers but we have a few less acres than she does;)The list can seem overwhelming but at the end of the year it is nice to see things got crossed off.

Yay for you! You got a lot crossed off that list! You made my night Teresa~ I have been feeling horrible with a bad cold that won't let go and have had no desire to do anything (or even the desire to think about doing anything) around here. Your post perked me right up! Craigslist is a great spot to check out for free kids play areas. We live within driving distance of the Twin Cities and got our play set and swing set for free. Can't wait to see what you get accomplished this year! Love the pic!

Terri, we already have a playset for the kids it's just covered in tumbleweeds and spiders. Rob and the kids are making a fort also down there.
