War zone

Can't believe we have been blessed with still another beautiful day!!  Did some bits and pieces of errands and jobs before going to collect firewood - a family affair in which all four of us loaded up three cubic metres of pine into a borrowed trailer.  We have heaps of bluegum drying out in preparation for winter but needed some softer wood as well to keep the harder bluegum going - oh the wonderful things one can learn in a cold country!  The boys earned a reward by way of sundaes from Burger King, which we ate while meandering down to Caroline Bay.  Also stopped in at the Warehouse (where Caleb gets a bargain) to spend Caleb's birthday money from Granny and Grandpa.  He found a Lego set at a bargain 50% discount, yippee...he and Aaron had a good half an hour building this chunky dragon which has a flexible construction and looks fearsome.  After that they pulled out nearly every box and container of toys in their room to build an exciting game of Lego and pirates and hapless soldiers and possibly even a car or two.   I didn't even bother trying to get them to tidy it up.  I figured that much effort into setting up a playing field must surely be rewarded by staying that way until they got tired of not seeing their floor anymore, or until one of them impaled a bare foot in the middle of the night.

To walk on a lego piece is a rite of passage in every culture :D
