This year we were gifted with some wood from one of our neighbors, as well as some from my dad. This led to some family project time to retrieve the wood and process it.
Nathan was very interested in the whole process, and helped shuttle wood from the chopping block to appropriate piles.
And of course he wanted to help with the chopping as well. Dave was happy to explain the theory…
…and let him take a turn at the axe. Nathan wasn’t able to make much headway, but he has a lot of years yet to gain in skills.
Ryan, meanwhile, could hardly lift the axe head from the ground. He tired of that game quickly and played with sticks instead.
How satisfying is a nicely stocked woodpile?
