The return of sunshine and mild temperatures today had us outside doing yard work. We decided where we want the fire pit and outlined it with rocks then burned a pile of sticks and branches.
Some of the kids were more interested in the water we had close by in case of stray sparks then they were in the fire. Which was fine with me.
Then some of the kids decided to gather some rocks and try to make their own fire pit. Without the fire, of course.
And Austin and Aaron decided to climb trees. Since Austin's fall from a tree in January '10,(resulting is a small subdural hematoma) he is pretty cautious climbing trees. I'm glad he's careful but I don't want him to be afraid to get out do things. Although it still makes me a little nervous to watch.
