Check out these great pictures!
Katie and Taylor are getting outfitted with new gear. They got some cool hats and t-shirts which they got to decorate themselves.
Franklin is working on drawing a bird onto his shirt.
It was fun moving into our new homes. They are a little different from the ones we normally sleep in. Some had some really cool designs and they were really large.

Playing with cats while doing a bead craft
Playing many different kinds of games
Learned about the civil war
Weapons of the civil war
Getting to play with the guns. (Don't worry they are not real.)
We even got to ride on horses through the wide open plains.
We even got to participate in a pow wow, learned new dances and competed in a compition with our new moves.

We even got to taste the local food that grows in the area.
Nathaniel is doing a great job of mashing the berries, jerky, and nuts together.
We created a new clothing line for summer 2009.
