Daughter helps start the fires and she "knocks the wood as she walks by it". She'll help next year I'm sure. Good girl. Love burning, but as of now understands the steps. I used the lighter for the grill today and as soon as I picked it up, she asked about lighting the stove. Right now she crumbles the paper, hands me the kindling and gives me the small splits for the first fire. She even asks me to make them smaller off the bat. I love her. She will make a man happy a few (ha, ha) years from now. Her first rifle is already sitting here.
