More rain in the forecast, so more debating about whether to break ground or not today. The crews left the decision up to our general contractor. After checking the weather forecast again. He decided... DIG!
Couldn't wait to pick up Shine and get out to the lot to share the excitement with him. We met another one of the crew. Got to see him trek into and out of the hole, measuring depth. Excavator says he must be a mountain goat to be able to do it without a ladder! The digger hit a big, stubborn rock right before we left. Couldn't pry it out without tipping the whole tractor (and making me nervous), or pound it out. Fortunately, I don't think they needed to go much deeper. The wise man built his house upon the rock anyway, right?
In the evening, Daddy took Shimmer (and Shine) over, so they could see the official start of our new home for themselves and check on the progress at day's end.
