The kids had a lot of fun, and got to play in the wood and just be kids. Most kids don't get a chance to do that anymore. I'm so glad that our family does this as a hobby. It's a great family activity, and my kids get to learn TONS (more than they even want to!) about the history of our country. If you ever get the chance, you should go and see a reenactment. They're a great time, and you'll learn a lot!
Yes, the were CLOSELY supervised! That deep river and steep bank was NOT a highlight of my trip. I eventually laid branches out as a "don't cross this line" barrier so they could throw rocks into the river for a minute or two, then we moved on.
And here's Tom (8 yrs)! Isn't he a cutie! His big brother let him borrow his habersack (that bag at his waist) and kepi (hat), and his dad is letting him pose with the sword. While sabers (swords) were RARELY used in battles, they were often still part of a cavalry mans uniform.
This is a WordArt request from Trina, who has a cute pic of her 3 month old in cowboy boots. Adorable! So, take your pick. Are you boots made for walking, or NOT for walking :) hehehe.
