    OK – I’m heading to the library today (in the rain) to get this book. I also read Amish America’s book review. Glad we are getting rain, I’ll be in the mood to read.

    Growing Up Amish was not in our library but I did get Rumspringa and am half way through. I learned how Amish parents differ from one family to the next and the growing pains of teens are similar to the English. The Amish kids that choose to party can go to the extreme. I was a child of partying parents (drinking/smoking/dancing) but my rebellious days consisted of drinking Fuzzy Navels one New Years Eve until I got sick – didn’t drink again for ten years. I refused the peer pressure of smoking (probably because I grew up with the stench) and feared doing drugs. Had I been born and raised Amish, I have no clue what kind of things I would have been up to in Rumspringa. I can’t wait to finish the book.

    Working with people you know from childhood is also much more rewarding than a random assortment of strangers. Many hands make light work.
