In March it was finally time to break ground on our piece of land. I was in states visiting with family, so it was left to Diego and the kids to make their mark. Diego took a shovel intending to let the kids each dig a bit. However, when they arrived, Mr. Aerni, in charge of our earth moving, had other plans. He asked Diego what he planned do with "that thing" (the shovel) and then invited the kids to each have a go in the digger. It was a hit and Devin added "Baumeister" (builder) to his list of future jobs.

Yeah, for a job well started!
After the kids had had their turns Mr. Aerni got to work and soon the plot looked like this....
