Splitting Wood

Yesterday, after a late breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, and zucchini bread, Dad and Nathaniel went outside to start splitting wood. There were six rows of firewood, most of which came from the maple tree that used to stand in this very spot. The wood was ready for splitting, since it had been drying all summer.

When I went down to help, they had already split and stacked three ranger loads. I think altogether we did six loads 🙂

We neatly stacked the firewood on pallets up by the shed.  I like stacking the wood, at least I think it is more fun than splitting it!

Gabrielle got these pictures of Dad and Nathaniel splitting a large log. It was probably the stump of a tree, now it is firewood that will be used to keep a house warm, or to build a campfire.
