Day 1 No Turning Back Now

Well, I never thought that when they said they wanted to start digging on Wednesday that they would actually show up on Tuesday to start early! Yippee! The fun has begun...I never thought I would be so happy to see a digger in our yard! We moved the swing set just in time!!! But the tower got stuck on the wrong side.....oh well! After only 2 hours they had the kitchen space dug and now as I type (and Cooper sleeping through it all) they are digging out the garage space....holy crap...its a mess!!! The point of no return. At lunch time we had to move Cooper's high chair near the window so he could watch all the excitement...I can't wait to see Caroline's face when she gets home from preschool.
The picture below is of the foundation...or lack of....we knew there was only a crawl space under this part of the house....but its amazing to see that this house is still standing after 150 years with only this below it! We'll all sleep a bit better once the new foundation is poured in.
