This was the final day of School of the Soldier. We found out today that this was the 14th year of it. It was hot, hot, hot today!! I can see now why in many of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books, she talks about lemonade under a shade tree. I love spending time at the museum. There is something about this place that really takes you back to the 1800's.
The boys showed off their skills today. They showed us the formations, marching and battles.
Lining up, getting ready for the "show".
Marching into the village square
Pointing the way.
Here they are going through maneuvers. They are showing us how they go from marching into a line for battle.
Ready, Aim, Fire!
Andrew's down again! But whew, with a smile on his face.
Being dismissed by the General. He is really great with these kids.
In a few weeks Andrew will be taking a ride on....
The "Intrepid" a replica of a Civil War balloon. So check back for a post on that. It goes about 300 feet into the air....gulp!
In a couple of weeks, Hannah will be doing her week at Summer Sampler. She is taking the Beginning Cooking. She will be learning how to cook in a hearth. So once again I'll be following her around.
