An Amish Summer By Laura Bradford

An Amish Summer By Laura Bradford

An Amish SummerWhether you equate the start of summer with Memorial Day or July Fourth, the season of fun in the sun and lazy days spent reading on a beach chair is, officially, here. But really, even without a calendar and the ever increasing humidity, there are other ways you’d probably know…

The smell of food barbecuing on grills throughout your neighborhood…

Kids walking around with beach towels…

Boats whirring across a lake…

The plunk of a lure as it’s lowered into the river…

The melodic sound of an approaching ice cream truck…

And the quick and sporadic glow of light that lets you know fireflies are near.

But have you ever wondered what summer time looks like for the Amish? I know I sure have.

And I’m pleased to tell you, there summer is infused with some fun just like ours…

They like to fish…

They, too, like to spend time with friends and family, visiting, although their time together is more likely to include pie and coffee than hamburgers and hotdogs….

They like to read, with fiction stories being a go-to for some, while others prefers books about history or nature…

Board games are brought out after the workday is over, with Scrabble and Uno being some of the more popular family style games…

And they, too, enjoy watching the fireflies from their front porch.

Happy Summer, everyone!
