Longhouse, day 3

We began day 3 of our Longhouse construction by scorching the ends of the posts (to prevent them from rotting in the ground), above, while laying out our construction site and digging holes where the posts were going to go, below:

Then, working in teams of two, the kids grabbed a post from the fire and dragged it to their holes:

One of the partners held the post while the other back-filled the dirt around it:

Then they went back to the fire for another post and switch jobs to set it.

Below, our Longhouse at the end of the day:

We were all exhausted after a work-filled week, and were happy to have a couple of days off to relax. But it's back to work on it today!
