Heidi, Ruby Catherine, Elizabeth and Grammy Lamby
visited a number of Amish homes on our trip in
Mississippi, Florida, Missouri, Kentucky and Georgia.
It was a great experience.
Who knew there were Amish communities in all these states?
|Randolph, Mississippi- |
The only Amish settlement in the deep south.
(sans the Sarasota, FL Amish community, but is Florida really in the South?)
|Ruby Catherine and Elizabeth had fun with the Amish children- |
sand boxes, swings, and lots of warm outside time!
|Logs from the Amish sawmill.|
|Handmade Amish rugs|
|Handmade Amish Rolling pins.|
|We visited 4 different Amish farms in Mississippi.|
|The kind family we stayed with provided us with a delicious breakfast. |
Scratch made biscuits, jams, eggs, home made cereals, farm fresh jersey milk-
A vegetarians delight!
|Think these type of Milk cans are out of date? |
In Clark Missouri- the Amish utilize them daily.
|Death is part of life on the farm. |
Ruby-Catherine stopped to pray for this fallen bird.
We have funerals for our small flock of chickens when one dies too.
Ruby-Cat has a heart of gold- she honors life.
|Spring plowing in Missouri.|
|Ruby Catherine slept by Momma every night on our trip. :)|
|The girls liked this swing so much - |
Grammy is going to have Grandpa Cory build one for their house in Idaho.
