Day 3 -by Emma Santoianni

Today we woke up in the morning, as people often do.  For breakfast we had granola and fruit. Then we got into the van and drove for an hour to Union Grove, NC, to visit Tom and Sandy Colletti, a new order Amish couple.
 As soon as we got there, we started a work project planting potatoes. Isaac Ashcraft looked funny using the rototiller.  We worked for a while. Then we ate lunch. Then we did more planting. 
Even after tilling and planting and hoeing, we all still had a ridiculous amount of energy, which we let out by running around on and tumbling over really big mounds of dirt and getting very dirty.
Afterwards, we walked to the Shiloh General Store a little over a mile away. On the walk, Anna, Keely and I planned the treehouse castle in our future.  It’s going to be awesome. Pete and Lauren will live there, too, but Pete will live in the dungeon. He will eat lots of lasagna and dairy products down there.
 When we got back from the store, we had a ton of spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. After dinner, we took a ride in a horse-drawn cart down the road and watched the sky turn orange. Back at the house we had apple crisp for dessert and told jokes with Tom. Now people are playing music in the living room. I am not. I am typing a thing.  But now I’m done typing my thing so I’m gonna stop and go do other things that do not involve typing. Today was a fun day.
In case you didn’t know, this is Emma. (And Keely made paragraphs.)
