A few weeks ago I mentioned I was thankful for a talk I had with one of our neighbors. I was sealing the fence in his yard and I just assumed, as it was during the day on a school day, no one was home. I think we both startled each other! Anyhow, we got to chatting and out of the blue he asked me if I wanted their swing set. For free.
As our backyard is such a weird shape, I told him I didn't think it would fit. I went and got a tape measure anyway.
OH my GOODNESS! There was room. Just enough room!
Blockette was going to get a swing set! Did you know this was her life long dream? I did because she has told me repeatedly.
It took a few weeks for Mrblocko and our neighbor's schedule to coincide, but on Saturday they moved the swing set into our yard.
The swings were pretty rusted so I ordered some new ones online. They arrived Monday right before she got home from school.
Too bad it rained all day Tuesday, and she was home from school with pink eye to boot.
I told her eventually it will stop raining, and there will be plenty more times to go outside and swing.
