At Grandpa’s – Chopping Wood

Bob, Andrew and Elizabeth came down for part of a day, and spent some of their leisure time splitting some wood. This process was great for the kids to watch. What was fun for me to watch was how Bob interacted with my kids. He got them involved in choosing which log would be the next one to split, and in helping the process by yelling as the axe-wielder swung — moral support which is always critical to the success of the endeavor. Honestly, I think I should take a few parenting lessons from my brother.

Occasionally, just for fun, he even tore a mostly-split log apart with his bare hands. All the spectators found that impressive.
