2 little girls so excited to sit up front with our driver! I think she was as fascinated with them as they were with her! For the record, our driver was menonite, not amish.
This is the house we went in. When they said a house tour, they did not mention that all we would be able to see was the basement! Isn't the house fancier than you would imagine? Notice there are no lights by the door. We were told that the reason they do not have electricity is because they take literally the verse in the bible do not be yoked with unbelievers which to them means to not be linked with even electric lines.
This family was going to be hosting church at their house for the week and so the trailer is full of pews to be used for service. One thing we read is that the Amish think it is interesting that we build these nice fancy houses, that we do not worship in. And then spend a whole bunch of $$ on buildings to worship in just once a week. Those Amish, we maybe should take a few tips from them! ;-)
Amish Schoolhouse. We asked our guide if any amish homeschool and she said, no, why would they? Well I guess I have no idea!
