It's a start

For the past 3 yrs (since we moved into our house) we've said we would put up a fence in the summer. Well summers have come and gone and at the end of each summer, we say "at the start of next year." This is finally the year. We knew we had to get it in before the secondary water turns on in the middle of this month, because the west side of our house is basically a swamp once the sprinklers come on. In addition to the water issue we committed ourselves to watching a dog for a few weeks at the start of this summer and a fence is a must!
This past weekend we did a lot of prep work, by "we" I mean Gage and his brothers. They worked with general conference turned up so that all in the neighborhood could listen along. We only pulled broke off two sprinkler heads and drilled through one main line... The sad part... Gage planned for a fence when he put in our sprinkling system, but our neighbor didn't. Both sprinklers and the main line were our neighbor's! Gage is really looking forward to fixing it!
Trevin was a good supervisor and had fun checking the holes and counting them.

We were so thankful to have the tractor, it was so much faster than hand digging holes.

And when the tractor was too slow, we found that adding a little weight made it go even faster! Like I said it's a start and I can't wait to get the posts in so I don't have to worry about one of the neighbor kids falling in one of the holes! Thanks for all the help guys!
