Amish Cook 08-28

By: Lovina Eicher

It is 5:15 a.m. and our 18-year-old daughter, Elizabeth just left for her job at the factory.  My husband Joe left over an hour ago for his job.  Elizabeth started at the factory a couple of weeks ago. She works five days a week. Her cleaning job didn’t have enough days of work each week for her. At the factory they make camping trailers. I miss Elizabeth’s good help here at home, but Susan and Verena are done detasseling corn now so they can help.

School doors will open in a few weeks. The six youngest will all be in school then. This will be Verena’s last year, Kevin will be in the first grade, Lovina in second, Joseph in fourth, Loretta in sixth and Benjamin in seventh. Time is going by too fast!
