Stacking Firewood

Sure - this isn't as glamorous as Smelt Dipping and Skunk skinning, but we do alot of it here in the NW. Besides, stacking firewood is a GREAT way to keep the kids busy and working, which keeps them out-a-trouble. Its tough keeping enough work going - especially in the winter - to keep the kids busy! (Sometimes I push the piles over so we have to re-stack them... sh!) They always feel good when we are done...
We've cut about a dozen fir trees that were about 15 years old this year to clear pasture and garden space. The firewood is great - we can heat most of the house with the woodstove, and it is very cheering on a wet spring day.
