This spouse from FT Hood was fun to visit with. I got a new appreciation for how TOUGH it was to be a military family at the Fort in the 1800's. I'll try to keep this perspective during our upcoming move. LOL

We happened into the school trips, before it was really open to the public....but many of the re-enactors enjoyed giving us specialized instruction and history lessons. We heard many times, "we can tell you are a homeschool family" - and they seemd OK with that. ::snort::

Someone gave them yo-yo's....imagine 6 boys in a small room, with yo-yo's and hours on their hands. ::snort:: I was glad they had something to keep them really busy. One night down - two to go.
