We have replaced many mail boxes at our house over the years. Vandals seem to have fun driving in the neighborhood with a baseball bat, people back out of the drive way and run over it. . . . stuff like that. Two days ago it happened yet again. Jack and Charlie spent the day with us today and we decided to put up a new mailbox. As you can see--we had fun. First you have to get more dirt from the back yard.a> Then you take it back out front and pack it in the hole to hold up the new post.
Then you talk this kid out of taking the old mailbox home---as it is needed atop the new post. "But Gramma, I really need this."I also got to see Owen and Liesl's swimming lesson this week. They did awesome. Yup--summers are fun.
