All fun things must come to an end.  Today we headed home.
We managed to drive the 600 miles in 10 hours.  We ate in the car and only stopped 3 times to go to the bathroom.  It was a long trip!  It seemed much worse than the trip up there but going home always seems that way to me.  The kids really were pretty good for doing so much traveling but the last hour was really tough on all of us!
We made it home in time to head out to the lot and get a look at the progress that had been made since we had left.
Apparently digging the basement wasn't too bad, but when they went to dig the footings they hid rock and had to jackhammer it out.  This added 2 days on to our timeline.  The concrete guy said it was a good thing though because it has a nice stable base with all of that rock.
Jacob also managed to get a lot of clearing done on the back of the lot while we were gone.  It looks good back there.  I have never been all the way back to our property line because of the cactus but once I finally made it out there I love it.  It is going to be a great place for the kids to play and explore!
