More clearing

More of the area was cleared today. Now the temporary road to the well is pretty well cleared out and more trees were taken down. They had a burn pile going for the stumps too.

This is so exciting!

The kids made their first visit to our "house". They love the huge excavator and playing in the dirt. I don't think I ever loved the smell of dirt more. we've taken out a number of trees and its really opening up. I can't believe its only been 2 days and we almost have a driveway. Its pretty awesome. We're so grateful for the blessings of the Lord.

It's started!

After 2 years of hoping and 1 year of planning, the first steps are finally being made to build our house! The driveway started going in today which really changes my perspective on the property. It's no longer a plot of land, it's a place where our house will be!

We'll be taking pictures as much as we can to document the process for those that want to follow it. Hopefully we'll keep up with everything that goes on.
