Gone with the Goal Post

When we moved into this house, it had a basketball goal out front.  But the gaol was broken, so we took it down.... which left a big ugly goal post next to our driveway.  For the last three years, this eye sore has driven me crazy.  I was pretty sure I was going to accidentally back into it one day.  Twice, we have tried to dig it up... but it was a bigger project than expected and we gave up.

But today was my day!  The weather was beautiful and the ground was softened from the recent rain.  It took me about an hour, but my digging was successful!!  Unfortunately, this thing is too big and heavy for us to actually move.  So for now, it's just laying in our side yard.  But, it's GONE!!

We enjoyed getting outside.  Ledger was a big helper with his shovel, as you can see below.  We also found an earthworm, which Ledger determined was "icky". :)


  1. Earthworms are icky but maybe his mind will change on that one when he is older and wants to tease a hot 3 year old girl with one. Good afternoon for the Michels! love you!

  2. I agree with the Ledger man ~ earthworms are "icky". Looks like he was a good helper ~ hope his dad was, too. :)
