A Good Deal

Toinght, I dropped Annie off at her cousin's college dorm 
& headed to home to a house filled with boys. 

Bo has a friend sleeping over so I'm outnumbered 7-1.

I heard Kelly shouting out the front door,
"Bo!  Put that saw away! You can't cut off our tree limbs!"

Bo explained he needed firewood to sell.

I told him if he wanted firewood, to gather it from the woods, 
in the BACKyard.  
Kelly took the saw and they scrambled to the woods.

10 minutes later Rocco came in the house to grab 
something out of his drawer in the kitchen.

Rocco:  Bo got some great firewood! He took the bark off  
             and he's washing it so he can sell it.

Me:  You can NOT wash firewood Rocco.  
         And he can NOT sell it!

Rocco:  Yes he can.

Me: No...he can't.

Rocco:  Yes he can, why not?  It's just beautiful.

Kelly:  Rocco why are you taking that dollar outside? 
           (as Rocco is headed back out)

Rocco: I'm gonna buy some firewood.

Oh it turns out Rocco's tooth fairy money from his first tooth was in his hands less than 12 hours.

Rocco gave Bo the dollar and was quite 
delighted with his wet beautiful firewood.

I have to was beautiful,
(and much larger than I thought it would be.)

And the rest of the wood made delicious 
s'mores for the good ole' boys club.

 So I am admitting here that I was wrong.

You CAN wash firewood,
And someone will buy it.

I can only imagine what our friends say when they return home.
Sorry Joey.

Hello old friend! I'm so happy to see how your family has grown, and that you're blogging away, still! :)
And what a fun mama you are to let your boys go after their wild adventures--cutting down tree limbs and all. Love it! xo

Ha-ha! That's the fastest sale ever. I'm thinking that piece of wood could be made into so many wonderful things.

I like Bo's "entrepreneurial" spirit. You should encourage it. It's never too early for kids to be creative, to find ways of learning how to earn some money and manage it.
Awsome pictures!
