Nicholas LOVES starting fires. Ever since we went camping this summer he has been talking about making fires. He frequently gathers little sticks and pretends to build fires with them.
Jackson and I are over the cub scouts at church. For our last pack meeting, among other things, we had a fire in this fire pit and made smores. Jackson's dad made this pit years ago out of an old washing machine drum. It works great! The only thing I would change about it is to have it a bit lower to the ground, so you could see into it while you were sitting down. We haven't returned it to Jackson's dad yet. Every night Nicholas asks to start a fire. He gets so excited. I am a bit worried what this fascination of fire will hold for us in the future. Hopefully we can teach him the power and danger of fire and how to be responsible with it.
