The two boys have been building pretend campfires in our lounge. LJ in particular has been driving it and fascinated with the concept.

So today I offered them a real , one. Needless to say they were beside themselves with excitement.

I was also pleasently surprised how well behaved and responsible they were. They built the fire and I helped CJ light it, then they both stepped back to safety and say and watched it.

Once it died down a bit I helped them do marshmellows on fresh rosemary sticks to make smores. Amazingly CJ even knew they were called Smores, a word I’ve only been introduced to recently, it’s amazing wha thtey pick up and parrot back.
