Childhood fun

I remember when I was just a little one, smaller than my brothers and not yet allowed to play with magnifying glasses.  I remember watching in awe that my brother could burn shapes onto wood, paper, leaves.  I used to wish that I could be old enough to do that and then when I got older, it just didn’t bother me anymore.

Then this morning Jason came to me with his magnifying glass and asked if I would show him how to use it to burn paper.   We had so much fun.  Even little Zander had a go at it.  So did Quintus while he was supposed to be studying.

    ah Mel, I know just how you feel! I did a similar post a few weeks back. Honey made a beautiful wooden sign for our gate with all our names burnt into it. 🙂
