After getting the wood chips delivered, we set out to get newspaper. Several neighbors were very generous, and I was able to get a bunch of newspapers while at a company meeting. We were all staying in a hotel that delivered the USA Today to each room each morning, so I asked my co-workers to give me the paper when each one was finished reading it. I probably could have asked the hotel manager for all used papers for a day or two, and that's something I'm considering to do here in Bentonville. I have a friend who manages a hotel locally, so I'll call her tomorrow to check on it. If there are 200 rooms in a hotel and I'm able to get papers from 1/2 of those rooms, that should provide what we need!
The greatest challenge to getting the newspapers put down was that Isaac kept stopping to read the comics section!
|A few newspapers then a few wood chips to keep the papers from blowing away.|
|Isaac worked hard. Glad we have that little red wagon!|
|We're getting there!|

|Done for today!|
