After our 10 year old was off to school, we loaded our 4 year old, our guest, and ourselves into the car and headed for the lot. We felt a mixture of excitement and pride as we set out on our adventure. Although, we were full aware that it would not be a "Ta-da" moment, but more of a "Ah, I see" type of feeling it was still very exciting.

However, Bryan is a determined individual, if nothing else. He decided to take one last swing into the neighborhood and see if there was a chance that the workers were on lunch. Well, they were not, but the backhoe was now in the middle of another lot. The road was clear enough to pass to show Gregg the actual site. Well, we were surprised to see what we found. Take a look:
|Large rocks were now in what will be our driveway.|
|Plastic wrap and stakes outline our land.|
|The old Lot 8 sold sign looks pretty good in an actual job site.|
|Our land reaches all the way back to the established trees.|

We arrived back at the rental and sent Drew the following e-mail:

Good evening! We drove by the site today and noticed some progress! If you have time, will you please send Bryan or me an email or text when you know when you will break ground at our site? It would be exciting to see that! Thanks!
