Our House 1989

The yard looks nothing like this today.

I can remember planting all these trees as saplings.
As we would dig the holes and water the little trees Dad would try to get us to imagine our kids playing in a forest of a front yard

I would try to imagine it and I can remember being a little jealous because they would enjoy climbing in trees that I could, would a did run over with the lawn mower.

Now all but one of my kids are married and I did enjoy my kids playing in these trees.
It was a source of leaves for school projects, a canopy from the Sun and fun for them to climb and hide in.

Better than I ever imagined as a kid.

Thanks Dad for letting (making) me help plant these trees.

Ps.  Can I have the ones that are dead for firewood?
