dig day

D day is today.  And for us it now has two meanings.  Of course, the remembrance of Pearl Harbor, but it also means DIG DAY!

This morning, I loaded all of the kiddos up in the car and drove Mary to school.  I was careful to remember my purse, have everyone buckled in the proper seats, and to drive the speed limit this time.  :) 

Then we drove straight over to our lot, where we found this happening!  I forgot the camera, so we rushed home, grabbed the camera and rushed right back over to the lot.  Unfortunately, the camera will not download to the computer, so you get some good ol' cell phone pictures.
I was so excited that I literally shouted for joy, the boys thought it was hilarious, but they soon joined in the hollers and yells of excitement and joy. Even our poor ear infected, sinus infected, hacking cough, pink eyed, penicillin loaded Luke was smiling.
I took about a million pictures, and also got a bunch of video footage.  It is just so exciting to see that this is all for real, and that our home has begun!
The guy driving the digger, saw me taking pictures, and came over to me.  He asked me if I was the homeowner.  I grinned from ear to ear as I said yes.  He then walked me around the site and showed me where everything was, and talked about the process for the next few weeks. 
Sam got out of the car and came over, so I introduced him to the "digger driver." Sam's eyes were as big as saucers.  He just met one of his heroes, and he was actually speechless.
It was cute to see the boys so into the machines, and the thought of knowing that they were making our house. They felt special knowing that all of these machines were making something for us.

We will go back and check it out again when I pick the kids up from school, so Mary can se it, and we will probably check it out one more time when Ben gets home. I wish I could stay there all day, but life goes on.

And so it has begun!    These next few months are going to be so much fun watching the progress of our home, and counting down to move in day. Our dream is finally becoming a reality!
