External Power for Adafruit Motorshield(Arduino) Answered

Hey guys, I have an Adafruit Motor shield which I hope to control two DC motors(6-12v each) to make a tank. I want to power my motor shield with batteries(not an adapter), but im not sure where on the Arduino or the Motor shield board am I supposed to hook up the two wires from the batteries safely.
