Buffalo Soldier Day

We watched the Buffalo Soldiers work with their horses. It was very impressive.

This is us doing battle with water guns. Once you were shot with a water gun you were wounded and had to be carried off of the battleground. We also learned how important it was to follow your commander's instructions in the heat of 'battle'. It was a blast. and we will probably do it again when it get's hot this afternoon.

Boy, we had a very full day. We learned more about Buffalo Soldiers, we rode horses, we practiced our drills, we had water gun battles, we designed our own forts and we even had time to sit under a tree and listen to music!
