Charlotte, Michigan and Nappanee, Indiana

May 16
Today we’re at the library doing school. Yesterday we had a sleepover with Joe, Sam, and Anna. I forgot to tell you in my last blog that they’re traveling just like us. I also forgot to tell you how good Ms. Marlene’s dinner was. It was very good. We also went to a horse auction. Today we went to a place called Charlotte, Michigan.

Now that we’re back in Indiana at Newmar, we made some friends. Their names are Joe, Sam, and Anna. We went with them to an Amish wedding set-up. We played cops and robbers there. Then we went to an Amish family’s house. The Mom of this family’s name was Ms. Marlene. We rode in a small carriage and I got to drive! Then we went back to Newmar and went to bed.

My Dad has been going to the wind convention for awhile to learn about windmills. When he was gone we would be doing school, except for the last day. We went into Chicago to see him. Before we met up with him, we went to the Harry Potter Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. They had the real clothes, wands, books, and broomsticks from Harry Potter. My favorite was Voldemort’s wand. We also went to the bowling alley. When we got to the wind convention, we got lots of souvenirs and candy. Today we’re going back to the Newmar place to finish getting fixed.

Springfield, IL, and Nappanee, Indiana

May 2
At Abraham Lincoln’s Museum, we saw two movies and a bunch of displays. My favorite thing was the Ghost Library. My Mom liked all the dresses (…Mom’s). We went to his tomb next and rubbed his nose so we got good luck. If we didn’t rub it, we would have bad luck.
Later, we went to a Newmar place to get our RV fixed up. There are lots of Amish people here. We then visited my Mom’s friend, Sheryl. We also went to Notre Dame University. We went to the football stadium and bookstore.

We then went to a museum about the Amish and Mennonites. Next we went to an ice cream shop. We met a family there that was Mennonite. They have cows. The calves would suck on your finger! They also had a GIANT tractor that we rode in and drove.

We then went to an Amish person’s house. She was really nice. Her name was Ms. Sara, and she has 6 children. We went on a buggy ride with her. She has 3 horses. The one we used had the name, Boots. We went to a Ferrier’s house in the buggy and he changed Boots’ horse shoes. We played basketball and baseball with his kids. I rode their pony also. Next we went back to Ms. Sara’s house. They had dogs, cats, chickens, one calf, and horses. We went up in their hay loft too. It was lots of fun. We’re heading towards Chicago right now.
