They didn’t quite finish today — just some clean-up and stump-grinding left — but the trees are down.

And look — we’ve got sun!

I’m not sure that this side of the house has ever seen the sun! We’re pretty excited about that…

Best of all, for the first time ever, a contractor has done work at our house and NOT wrecked one of our cars or another part of the house that they weren’t hired to work on.

A job well done — I’ll have no problem making that $2750 check out to these guys.
