Fence is CLEARED!

We finally finished clearing the fence! This is where the driveway is going to go.
    Some of us worked harder than others… 😉
  This was the last big tree to come down off the fence. It took two people to pull it off.   Whoa! It’s so clear now! That was totally overgrown – 40′ long and at least 8′ deep. The fence wasn’t visible through the brush, and even with a working chainsaw it took a long time to get it all cleared.
  Andrew and Ellie also marked out where the barn is going to go.  Andrew also needed to show off his farmer’s tan. I think it’s coming along nicely.
 That feels SO GOOD.

Here’s a time lapse video Andrew did of the work!

Slow progress

Hi! We haven’t been at the farm much, so I haven’t had much to post. We did finish the brush clearing (post in the works!) and we are working on getting water! I also had a very exciting trip; my sister moved from California to Texas so I flew to California last Wednesday, then she and I drove the 1,750 miles between CA and TX in two looooong days. We had such a good time!  

Ok, that’s all for now. Here’s a bonus pic of my girls being cute (and filthy)!
