Our family was joined by Shawn's parents, my parents, Shawn's Aunt Jo and Eric's family. The kids all did good in the heat even though they started late.
Nana Yvette with all the K-kids standing in front of a tee-pee.
The K-kids standing by the cannon that was shot during the program. The men working the cannon had some really great stories to tell.
Kelton using some binoculars to view the action.
K-man and Konner trying to keep cool. Konner did a great job and sat in his shaded stroller spot for 3 hours.
K-sis up close and personal with one of the "Indians." They had real Native Americans, but we didn't get any close up shots with the kids.
The Native Americans signing the Peace Treaty.
A cattle drive.
The Native Americans waiting to attack the wagon trail.
It was so cool to see the wagon trains all lined up. I can just imagine how lines of 100's of wagons would have looked passing through the KS prairie. K-sis said next time she was going to bring her prairie bonnet and dress.
The Calvary chasing away the Indians attacking the wagon train.
I'm so glad that we have made the decision to homeschool so we had the opportunity to travel to see this historical event! My kids will remember this part of American history for a long time to come.
