There has been a lot of action going on at our place during the week. We've had plumbers here on and off finally laying down the storm water pipes and getting drains to the curb. It's so nice to finally have proper down pipes and not have pipes laying around on top of the ground, but actually being beneath the ground where they should be.
Kobe has loved having them here during the week and wanted to join in working with them. Unfortunately little people don't really help when it comes to things like plumbing in confined spaces, so I kept telling him he had to stay out of the way. This was his reaction! Super cranky face!
He decided he was going to keep a good eye on them and went and go his binoculars.
The boys loved the cubby that the old class had built for them a couple of years ago, and were so sad that we had to leave it at our old house. Kobe has been talking about it for months telling everyone that he is getting a new cubby, so he was so excited when we got home today and the new cubby was in the back yard (waiting for the landscapers to come tomorrow to do something special with it). Mum stayed last night and let them all come through this morning, and took photos for me.
On Tuesday night we had about ten guys from the Tasmanian Landscapers Association (I think that is what it is called?) come to our house, to go over the plans that had been designed for our yard by Martin. Each of them have been assigned to a different job to do. One of them came and told me that his son went to school with Aaron and loved having him as a teacher. Tomorrow morning we are having around sixteen (can you believe that!?!) professional landscapers come to do the whole yard by lunch time! I can't thank Aaron's cousin Tracey and her daughter Jessi-Rose enough for getting the ball rolling, and wanting to help get it done. I'm sure they probably didn't really know what they were in for when they approached Patrick to help out, but I'm so grateful that they did.
I'm blown away that this is actually happening, and can't believe it really is. We've almost been in our house for 17 months now, and it'll be a dream come true to actually have it finished. I never could've imagined that we would have a professionaly finished yard. One of the landscapers came today and started mapping out the front yard which is a Japanese design. I'm blown away by the lovely things that Martin has included in the design, to include our family in it.
