Ever since we moved in I have wanted to get the front porch area cleaned up, well we finally did it! Ryan had a particularly bad week in the behavior department and so his punishment was to remove all the rocks in the beds. I tell you, we have tried every punishment under the sun with that child, but nothing has worked better than this day of hard, physical labor! He really had time to think and reflect over the past week, plus, I think he's very proud of the job he did today....I know I am!!!
Here's the before picture:
The beds with rocks removed, landscaping fabric laid down, and a layer of mulch:
The finished project:
Now just to figure out what to plant in the beds that will make it through the winter!
