Thanks to the IRS, and the wonderful lady who does our taxes, we now have a brand new paved driveway. For those of you who don't know, our driveway used to be gravel (which is not all that uncommon around here) and it had served us well the last four years. However, once we were aware of the amount of our tax return, we began shopping around for the best estimate from a local paving company. Not only did one company bid lower than we expected, they were also out to begin work the same week. It has been a joy to watch the kids ride their bikes, play basketball and enjoy sidewalk chalk. The work crew provided a few days of entertainment also!
