When we bought this house last August, the reason we bought it was because of its location (at the end of a cul-du-sac), and the yard. The yard is HUGE! It was sorely neglected for many many years and needs a lot of work (as does the house). But it is a wonderful space nonetheless.
The back yard is very bumpy and full of ditches and dents. So last week Vince borrowed Grandpa's tractor and roller and started the process of wetting the yard and rolling it over and over in order to make it more smooth. He also aerated it and fertilized it to try to get it moving in the right direction.
Asher really enjoys driving the tractor and helped Vince quite a bit (man, I love that kid!).
