This, my friends, is what happens when your father in law gives your 7 year old a handsaw to help clear away the "little" trees in the fence line.
Eli has been cutting down trees for the past two days just around the corner from the house. Now, most of the trees that he cuts down have a diameter of 1-2 inches. He then decided yesterday to start cutting down a "little" tree with a diameter of about 6 inches. Apparently he decided it was too big of a job for him at the time, so he quit, about halfway through, without letting me know. Upon our return from VBS on this windy afternoon, the above picture is what I happened upon while trying to get home.
We were able to walk around the tree to the house to retrieve the handsaw so that Eli could "finish" his job, clearing a path to the house, about 30 minutes later.
