This is when I decided it was time to leave. Anders was sampling the water. Ew.

Mormon Battalion - Battalion Laundress
This was, by far, Anders most favorite activity. He charged right into this little tent and plunged his arms up to his elbows into the murky water, getting right to work - plunging, scrubbing, squeezing, plunging, scrubbing, squeezing, etc. What most amused me was the realization that my boys were using the clothing to wash the basin rather than the other way around. A couple of the ladies tried to correct them, but to no avail. They were going to get that bucket clean if it required the use of every single item of dirty clothing within to do it.
