….And it’s so exciting! This morning and 7:45 my grandpa came over with the excavator and got started digging! We need a whole bunch of dirt gone before he can get started on the retaining wall so we rented a big piece of machinery to help us out. While my grandpa was doing all the hard work I basically stood by in case there was anything he needed moved out of the way (random pieces of wood, metal, etc.). However, he did show me how to operate the excavator and I did one bucket of dirt! That was a lot of fun.
While I know my grandpa is a very capable man and has been doing this his whole life, there were still times today that I was preparing myself for that excavator to slip and slide. I am so happy it didn’t!
Another exciting thing about today: the ramp is OFFICIALLY and completely gone. Here is the final blow:
How it all looked by the end of the day:
Tomorrow Grandpa will be back and will finish up the back of the house before heading back down to take care of all the dirt he got from above. Woohoo!
