It started with David2 getting a hankering for toasted marshmallows like they had in Central. We have some old bricks lying around so the three younger boys constructed their fire pit.
Yesterday was pretty gusty and windy so the fire burned through the few bits of dry twig that the boys had scrounged, so newspaper was brought into action by a maternal parent who shall remain nameless to keep the flames going. But safety first!
I haven’t had toasted marshmallows in years. Not bad…
As the fire died down I went inside and left them to it. They had a lovely time. A sort of reward for the hideous day we all had… racing around doing all the jobs that we should have done over the holidays. There was a lot of geography and Maths involved, as well as dusting, sweeping and a spot of weeding. *sigh* School starts today for an 11 week term.
