Ugh! Just what every farm needs with a rambunctious 5 year old boy around. You can tell a boy not to go near it, but then what do they want to do….go near it. Crazy fearless things.
So while the company was here tearing down the house, we also had them take out the old septic tank and haul it away, as well as tear down a very old falling down garage. We are going to use the concrete pad from that garage as our basketball court. SWEET!
|The old garage is located just behind these two.|
|Gone. The pad is nestled in some really tall oak trees (which of course need to be trimmed) but it will be a great place for the kids to play basketball.|
Anyway, back to the issue at hand…. the old septic tank just happened to be located nearby the old well and I asked the demolition company if they could put a couple of scoops of dirt (from the big ol' scooper thingy they had) into the well. No problem.
It's just funny though. Here I was so worried that my five year old would fall into the old well when I turn around and find my oldest in the hole where the house was.
What is it with boys and holes in the ground????
