8 Things Every Child Should Experience.

I am on this "moms only" website and I came across this post of 8 things every kid should experience. Of course my baby is only 3 months old so I couldn't say my baby experienced any of these. So when I replied, I replied about my childhood. I thought that it would be interesting for my friends to see it so they could know more about me as well. :) So I am posting my reply to the ladies article on cafemom. 


"I only have a 3 month old, so I will answer these for myself. :)

Being part of a team: I played basketball and softball when I was in middle school.

Camping: My father didn't have a house one summer so we lived in a tent for 3 months and cooked over a fire. :)

Chores: we had milk goats, chickens and horses, a large garden and a wood stove. No washer machine. So of course we had chores! Which including washing clothes by hand. 

Snow: we lived in the Midwest, so not only did we experience snow but we also had a lot of ice storms.

Farm life: I answered that on the chores. We had our own domestic farm :) But I have worked on two Mennonite farms, a truck and garden farm and a chicken farm from age 14-16.

Lemoande stand: Our closest neighbor was about 1 1/2 miles away so who could we sell lemonade to? We did pick berries in the summer and sell them to the amish.

Flying a kite: Yes, but we made our own. :D

Bowling: On a feild trip with my classmates."

    I didnt mean to confuse or upset, what I meant was unless you are in a part of the country where the Amish are , or Mennonite and are familiar with their lifestyle it is odd to see, I remember when my(now) inlaws came up for our marriage (theyre from fla and cali) there was a buggy just trotting along the highway and they starred at it like it was from mars and we had to explain what they were and how they lived their lifestyle and their respone was"oh, we’ve read about them" once they understood they filed the info away and carried on….never to old to learn I guess
