    Bobby, wish I had pics of my kids when they first started helping with firewood. Just keep him involved and some day he may want some of his HS Sr pics to include that Stihl he grew up with because it meant that much to him. :coolsmile:

    He is my helper with kindling. My wife says I have him brainwashed. Every day I pick him up from daycare, he says, "home, firewood". Found a John Deere battery gator for him at a garage sale. He loves it, and so do I....he drives around, picks up the sticks for me, and says "firewood. I just hope he keeps the same enthusiasm as he gets older!!!

    Yep, stacking first, then splitting, then get em on the saw.
    My oldest son is ready to start running the saw, but I don't know if I'm ready to let him yet, not without all kinds of safety gear anyway.

    For now they are the main splitter/stackers around this house.

    Before this rain moved through we moved some wood from the stacks up to the house. I dropped a limb off the wheel barrow and sent my little one to get it. He's a big help.
