Others will read in horror, and want to hide it from their children.
But hey, I'm all about keeping it real, and this is how we roll around here.
Enoch turned nine on January 30th. As gifts he received assorted boy things. We're not big on toys in this house. We love legos and blocks and playmobile, but by the time a boy is nine, he's ready for real things.
Like antler firestarters for camping.
And if you give a boy a fire starter, he's going to want to start a fire.
Now keep in mind, we heat strictly with a woodstove. If not for fires, we would freeze in the winter. And Enoch has been starting fires in our stoves since he was eight. He has been trained. He knows all about fire safety. And he knows he is BUSTED if he starts a fire without permission.
Along with the fire starter, he also received a pocket saw, some carbines, a steel match holder, a WWII Army surplus backpack. Let's just say, he was one happy camper.
