Getting it right

"According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building upon it. But let each man be careful how he builds upon it. For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 3:10-11

After we got the new front steps figured out, it was time to start laying the rest of the timbers. In this photo, Eric is using a string to determine the wall which runs parallel to the house.

Marking possibly-changing boundaries.

Digging rock-invested dirt.

Chopping never-ending roots.

Wait a minute.

Isn't there an alternative ending to this story?

"Just then, Prince Charming rode in on his trusty orange steed and saved the princess from the exhaustion of physical labor."

Ahhh...that's more like it!
