Well, at least a whole new backyard – but it feels like a new world to us! We’ve been desperate for a backyard for quite some time – but these things take patience, time, and money! But, we found a great local place nearby who gave us an excellent deal on our sod (we ended up ordering not quite enough!) and we’re on our way to a real backyard!

Look at us now!
It is truly the little things. I love our grass. Goodness, this really should be my first installment of a series “Lessons from Lanshire” really, that could be the title of our blog. This house has been a teacher in so many ways. Delightful ways, convicting ways. The Lord has certainly used this “thing” to show us some simple joys and real struggles. So my Lesson from Lanshire #1 is this – to keep your eyes open to the simple joys and pleasures of life. Putting your feet in the grass ( much better than dirt!); appreciating vivid color (grass never looked so green to me!); laugh with your child as they explore something new! As ridiculous as this sounds – I sincerely hope that I allow myself to gain simple lessons and reminders from this grass for years to come!
