The Great Wall of Portieville

We're building a wall. Actually Dad is building the wall and we're helping.
Dad is taking our tower down and using the blocks to build our wall.
 See how much help we're giving him?
Mom says to tell you that the wall is the first step in terracing the yard to save it from erosion.
 She says that our feet running all over the place combined with Bailey digging trenches and the wind and rain are all making our yard slip down the hill.
Dad thinks that by building some walls going down the hill, the ground will stay where it's supposed to be and not move so much.
When he gets the wall finished, with our expert help, he says he'll build us another place to play even better than our tower.
Boy, building a wall is sure hard work.
We're going to need a nap after this.

You and your Dad have undertaken a very tough job - lots and lots of hard work. Just think of all the fun you will have soon jumping from one level to the next:)

we've built walls like that - Dad usually doesn't let us help. But that's because the walls are in the front yard and it's not fence. I can't wait to see what you get that's better than the shower tower. g

You can certainly tell spring is finally showing up--Lots of people are working in their yards and their pups are supervising the projects!!

I hope you've had a good day!!

No doubt you are a tremendous help to your dad. Tell him to be careful with that heavy lifting.

Whew! How on earth does Dad get anything done with all those supervisors?

I'm sure he couldn't get that wall built more than twice as fast without you. And it would be a lot less interesting without all that help.
