When we came here in April, both boys got to use the little hatchet to cut a few pieces of kindling for a fire. They thought that was the coolest. The youngest was talking about using the hatchet and wanting his own for months after that.
They’ve been fascinated with cutting and stacking firewood since it started getting cold out. So over the weekend, the boys helped cut up some fire wood for the wood stove.
But this time was different….they got to use the big ax! So this required a new lesson on how not to chop up the concrete in the process and a refresher on how not to cut off one’s toes!
No toes went missing during this lesson, and all are still attached today! This lesson would fall under scary mom moments!
And just so someone doesn’t claim we’re bad parents…Todd was cut out of the picture. He was right there the entire time. =)
