Our HUGE tree in the back yard is dying. Last year, the top center never got any leaves on it. Gary, from church, and his friend Jim came today to begin working on getting that monster of a tree cut down. They made good progress, but there is still much work to be done! It was tough work because the tree hangs over our house a long ways, as well as hanging very far over our neighbor's house. It's a big job!
this is the tree that's on its way down. See how HUGE it is?
there were some HUGE hunks of wood that came down out of that tree today!
they had to get creative with some rope and chain to "help" some of the branches down so that they wouldn't fall on our roof or the neighbors'!
and the cleanup...what fun! The good news is that we should have 10 years worth of campfire wood after all this is finished!
so did Rachel and KT
and Ethan and KT, too!
and they played in the fire, too.
