helping dad murder innocent trees

as part of our pool project, Jason has decided to cut down 4 trees in our back yard.  it seems a little drastic, and he actually feels pretty bad about it.  but the root systems were out of control, and apparently we've been wreaking havoc on our neighbors pool for 6 years.  so, the trees had to go. 
 the girls have been super good about waking up bright and early to go out and help dad.  this helps me get a little bit of extra sleep!  hurray!
 i love that they're out there in their jammies and flip flops. 

where's Madeline you may ask?  she's a later sleeper than the other girls, she'd also rather be snuggling in bed with me than working out in the yard.  i want her to have a good work ethic, but this makes me smile.

We got yelled at by the whole town (small town) for cutting down two mature trees up here. Same thing, the roots were out of control and I know someone who's bathroom was overtaken by the same type of tree roots system. We did feel bad. We even had a neighbor ask to take pictures in front of them a week before we did it.
