Little Sisters- or Little Servants?

When we would play in the attic at the Moss’s house, Brittany and I would always take the big side, and give Shelby and Rachel the tiny side. We found lots of wonderful things in that attic.  First, we found a mattress and a cot, then we found some pillows and a quilt.  Brittany and […]

He that Sweareth to His Own Hurt…

Not long after we moved to Mississippi  we went to see the Browns (an older couple that went to our church).  They had a farm, so they had chickens running around in their yard.  After a little bit we kids went outside and started trying to catch the chickens!  The Browns laughed and said that […]

Double Spanking

Once Elisabeth and Rebekah had both gotten in trouble and were both about to get a spanking. It was usually up to the ones receiving the spanking to decide who would go first, so Rebekah asked if Elisabeth could go first, and it was agreed that she would. Rebekah went out to wait her turn, […]

ABC Fruit Roll-ups

We were playing in the Moss’s attic one day, and we found some fruit roll ups. They had some chew marks on them, but they still looked good, so we ate them.  We did tear the chew marks off first, but after our little meal, we were somewhat afraid, so we went down and told […]

Scrapbook Night

Once Mrs. Cheryl came to our house to scrapbook with Mom, Elisabeth and Rebekah. She brought her daughter Kelsey, who was between Rachel and I in age. None of we three were into scrap-booking yet, so Rachel and I carried Kelsey off to our room to play. The scrap-bookers took longer than usual. We were […]

Bath Time!

One time (a long time ago) when Elisabeth finally decided she was too old to get a bath with Rebekah, Rebekah decided to allow Rachel and I the privilege of getting our bath with her! And… she got to make the rules. Here’s how it worked: we would all sit Indian style – Rebekah in […]

One Cold Day

Once when we lived in PA, our neighbor Renee came over.  She sometimes played with Elisabeth and Rebekah.  This particular time it was very cold.  There was a big hole in the side yard filled with water.  It had been just cold enough to get a layer of ice over the hole – it wasn’t very […]

Soccer in the Graveyard

Once we kids were playing soccer outside.  We gradually drifted into the graveyard, where there was an open grave that had just been dug.  We continued to play ball, until suddenly the ball rolled right into that empty grave! We weren’t ready to give up a ball, and we had never been down inside a […]

The Second Baptism

One Saturday evening, we kids were all standing around the baptistery. It was filled with water, because someone was going to be baptized Sunday.  Well, all of we kids except Steven were standing around it, but he soon came in too.  He looked into the baptistery, he looked at all of us standing around it, then […]

A Little Night Music

We were going to visit relatives in Hancock, Maryland, and we lived in Cairo, Mississippi.  It usually took us sixteen hours of driving.  Great-grandma Heidler lived with us then, and she wasn’t able to travel such a long distance.  So we asked a family in our church if they would stay at our house while […]
