As we where resting today we got to live like king's. It was great we could play all day and swim and clean ourselves all day in the water. One game we played was hide and go seek. I only one once out of 12 games. Then we played tag and cat's cradle. I was very could at cat's cradle even thought it is more of a girly game. For tag I like to be "it" so I was "it" for all 6 rounds. Then once we where bored of all those games we got to jump start into the lake in our underwear. I could cool of and clean myself. Finally my mom called me to eat. I was kind of mad at her because I had to stop playing. Back when it was 2150 I don't even know if I had this much fun with my IPhone 567. But I quickly took back saying that because the food was amazing we got rabbit stew with potatoes and other vegetables that the men hunted and gathered this morning, and we even had an apple cobbler for desert! Normally we just eat leftover food and I guess that is going to be how it is for the whole trail but today was different and the food was amazing. I thought I was back in 2150 eating at a world class designed restaurant that is worth like a quarter billion dollars. The day was almost over when I realized that I had to do my chores. And that feeling made my heart drop I had to,
Helping adults milk the cows
Helping adults feed the stock animals
Gathering cow dung (in chip form) for the fires
Older children helped skin game that was caught
Fetch water from nearby streams
Hung beef jerky to dry, this was all very hard. And I had to do it before it was pitch black outside. So after this riveting day I was stuck doing chores. But I guess now that I am done with all my chores I can spend the next two days having fun and playing. Also when I was doing my chores I had to rest the animals because now they are going to walk like 40 mile tomorrow. And if they do we will make great time. I can't wait till tomorrow and to see how far all this resting helped the animals.
