Last Friday, it was life as usual.
Andy dropped the kids off and headed off to work.
At lunch time, he came and had lunch with us and then cut the grass.
He used his zero turn to push the trampoline across the yard and left it there.
It keeps the grass under it from dying.
After lunch, I was getting ready to put Teagan for a nap,
Locklan went with Pappy K to run errands.
I posted this picture on Instagram:
I commented: According to Marie Kondo, if it sparks joy, keep it.
Rocking my granddaughter to sleep is a keeper!
A few minutes later, she woke up just as Mr. K and Locklan were coming in.
The kids headed out to play in the back yard and this is what they saw...
This huge branch had fallen from one of the trees,
and smashed the trampoline!
Andy later estimated it fell 20 feet.
This is where the kids always play.
Tell me there aren't angels watching over them.
(We have emergency calls out to several local tree services to come and evaluate the rest of the trees)
