9-19-2017 A Little Road Action

The road into our housing subdivision
has been torn up for over 2 years...
our street on the left...
the road to town on the right...

...so I was very excited to see some
cement trucks today!
Maybe they are finally making some progress?
Hope they can finish it before winter comes.

lucky to get any now that most of it
will be heading down south for the 
hurricane Harvey and Irma recovery efforts/rebuilding!)
The hangers are supposed to come tomorrow.

No, Oma! I don't want to go!!!
Soccer is so boring!
(She spends the majority of the time
climbing on the bleachers.)
