Yesterday the boys wanted to make a fire while meanwhile Mara was combing the woods looking for a tiny sapling that she could hopefully turn into a Bonsai (which she has been reading up on). I okayed a small fire and they did it with "Just one match!" I went out and sat around it with them, wrapped in a blanket as I was still struggling with fevers and chills.
A good time was had by all.
I think our house will be a bit emptier again for a while. When fine weather comes the kids prefer to live outside.
