Venue Progress..really!

As Courtney mentioned Monday, patience has been the name of the game here lately. And we STILL need to be patient! The permits are looking like they will be ready this Friday or Monday. The good news is that someone FINALLY gave me a cost to give to the bank to get the funds ready. You would think that they would be all over trying to get their money on time! Anyways, that process is going  and in the meantime, we went ahead and started grading, adding Carolina Grit to the entrance so that big trucks won't get stuck in the mud, and clearing a few hazardous branches/trees. 

I took the kiddos out there today to see the tractors and snap a few pictures. It was hot out there! Good gracious the heat index made it feel like it was in the 100's! Needless to say, we didn't stay too very long. But here is proof that we have broken ground. What a momentous day!

I'll snap a few picture later today when it is all finished! Do you see those insanely huge weeds! Thanks to all this rain, they have grown almost 5 times as high as the last time I was there. Those suckers are serious and have a seriously deep root system. Sounds like fun doesn't it?!?
