Good day yesterday! Our First Cub Scout Day Camp went really well. J had a great time and got to try out a bunch of activities. Fishing, bb gun, archery, sling shot, games, fires and dutch oven cooking. It was a bit chilly but warmed up as the day went on.
J got this branded wood slat. There was a station where the kids get to watch them brand the wood and scream "YEEEE HAAAWWWW!!!" when the wood caught fire from the heat of the brand. I put a label on the back for dating and will be drilling a hole in the top so he can hang it up in his room.
In the evening I was splitting some firewood and decided a camp fire sounded good. Luckily there is a shit ton of tree debris from my monster tree I cut down, and it is all right in the yard. J helped me gather up a bunch of branches and sticks and we got the fire burning nice and hot. The thing is still hot this morning so I will get it back going for the day in a little while.
I am finally feeling a bit of accomplishment with having cut all the trees down to rounds. Even though the splitting is towering over me, it feels good to have the trees to a manageable size. It sucks staring at full trees on the ground, not being able to split them and move them.
Today I go get grain soon, then maybe get hay mid day, and I have to clean out the garden of the dead plants. The sheep will be extra happy to have the dead bean plants to munch on.
