Sometimes Eric tries to slip super random purchases by me. Like a chainsaw. More recently though, it was just an axe. What does one do with a newly purchased axe? Why, cut down a tree of course!
Ok, I just have to share who I cropped out of that last one:
Oh, good, he got a sharp tool to hold and all is well:
Don't worry, the tree chopping wasn't really random. It was part of Eric's 2015 "Summer Skills" course. Each year he learns a new skill and this year it happens to be log cabin building. Sans power tools. More and more I am convinced he's hoping for the collapse of modern civilization. Washington is making him weird ;) Please note tree-hugging Maggie is absent. Washington is also making her weird.
