Ok, so turns out taking care of a sick wife, her taking care of me having a torn up body and brain and the two of us taking care of two kids takes more balancing than I thought.:) My ability to adapt has obviously been slowed since I was in the military. Anyway, what matters most is that we are moving ever forward! Thanks so much family for your patience! You guys rock!
So, going back in time. When the men from the church came over to fill the trenches I was running around like a mad man trying to supervise all the work so I did not get any pictures. Here are the pictures I got of the work when they left.
The ground was not completely thawed so we were not able to fill in all the trenches. As you can see, on top of the sand base there was a layer of wood. (I had my son and nephews getting all that together.) I really wanted the wood on top of the sand especially on the roads. Eventually the wood will rot away, but for now, it will keep the rocks from working themselves down to the cable until the soil hardens.
Over all, the day was a monster of a day and tons ways done! It was very nerve racking at first but then it turned out to be a huge blessing!
So much more to follow…I have to get you all caught up!:)
