The Beginning of Home Projects

Our fall is off to a great start. The first of our home projects is nearing completion. By this time next year we hope to have our yard finished, but for now we're working on the mailbox and putting down gravel so the poor mailman won't get stuck again next winter. Trav's amazing Grandpa Hirschi helped us out with his skills in masonry (thanks so much Grandpa!). We had to wait for the mortar to dry before putting the 300lb (or so it seems) capstone on it next week. We'll post the final project soon, but for now here's a peak at what we've got done so far.

And Trav's reward for all his hard work!
