This is what’s left from last year’s lawn care debacle:

Very little of what is green in this image is the type of grass you want on your lawn. I finally caved this year and hired a service to help me take care of the weed killing and fertilizing. I’m not sure I’ll have much of a yard left.

My parents came out for a surprise visit for one of Joshua’s last tee ball games, so we brought the camera along. He’s come a long way in terms of learning the game and how to do things just in the past two months.
