Here's what our "cave wall" looks like now. I wonder how these pictures will be interpreted thousands of years from now.
Later in the week, we really delved into the world of the nomad by building huts in the wild and foraging for our own food. Eli and Leah made little huts with materials they found in the wilderness.
Noah built a hunting lookout. He was able to bag a deer for lunch with nothing but his instincts and a bow and arrow.
Naomi got really creative. At first glance, the thing in her hand looks just like a bunny. What you may not realize is that it's just a stick with two points that look like bunny ears. She entertained herself for an hour bouncing the stick around and saying "hop, hop, hop".
I was able to turn the deer meat Noah got for us into hot dogs, which we roasted over a fire we started with two sticks (or more like 15 sticks called matches).
To supplement the meal, I gathered some paper plates, buns, ketchup, mustard, chips, sliced peaches, and juice boxes. It's amazing how nature provides all the necessities; you just have to know where to look.
Leah took the first watch during lunch so no mountain lions or warring tribes attacked and stole our lunch.
Finally, we were honored to share our feast with the revered elder of the tribe, Big Chief.
Even though the land provided for all our needs, I would still rather live in this time with all it's modern conveniences.
