Why I Moved to the Country: Reason #138

Where else can a boy hang out with his dad and learn
how to split wood?

This is the kind of thing I was talking about in my post today. You can't learn to split wood where I live. I so appreciate your view from the country. Also, thank you for your kind comment.

Have a good evening.

J has been chopping and splitting wood since July! We heat by wood, although we do have 2 gas fireplaces, last year we did not use them! And saved a bundle of $$$!
Your kids are so very lucky to be growing up in the country. I really truly believe it makes for a well-rounded adult and learning to be self-sufficient!
Here is a link for a wonderful blog by a woman living in Brittany, France. I read it in English but you can set it to read in French!!

Oh man! We need one of those gadgets! Hubby says he has log splitter envy :) Looks like a good lesson is taking place. Can't beat the country for growing up, but then again.. I'm a little biased ;-) Great picture! -Tammy

There are so many wonderful reasons to be in the country and that is surely one of them. Your "link within" pulled up some posts I haven't read so I'm off to visit them now.
