52 Week Challenge - Week 19

In Ecclesiastes it is written that there is a time for everything, including a time to break down, and a time to build up.  My project this week was to help break down a large above ground pool in my daughter and son-in-law's yard.  

It  us amazing how quickly something can be demolished, as opposed to how long it takes to create, build, or assemble.

Our granddaughter had her tasks to do too.  She practiced her swinging technique, played in the hammock, and caught worms.  All very important work for a three year old.

We were all quite pleased with the results of our day.  The pool had been an eyesore for awhile, and it was great to have it down.  Now they can use the space for volleyball, or plant a garden, or as the location for the giant waterslide which they will be renting for their daughter's birthday in a month or so.

Maybe not everyone's idea of a good way to spend their Mother's Day, but it suited us to a "T."

Can't wait to see what you all have been up to this week.

Let's get busy,


  1. Looks like a great day's work:) And looks like your grandaughter had a fabulous day too:):)

  2. Well that didn't look like a fun job...but getting it out of there was probably the best part!

  3. Too bad it couldn't be filled and used! It's funny - we had one like that when I was a teen & when we took it down, a garden is exactly what we put in that spot!

  4. What a HUGE project! I'm glad you didn't mind spending your Mother's Day this way. And I love those photos of your granddaughter. She looks like she had a wonderful time, and now that the space in the yard has opened up, there are fun times ahead.
