be annoying Sarah just a little by putting you it into her apron kind of hard I may get into trouble later while I'm off in search of more wood Sarah heads home mother is so happy that we brought in the wood because she needs it to cook she uses it to make a fire whew a crackling fire can make the house pretty hot especially when it's warm out but we love all the delicious food that she cooks here we are grinding corn again sometimes it feels like we are always grinding the corn oh well
better that than not having any corn to grind mother says their chores are done for now and we can take a break play time first we play I call I throw the ball on the roof me then one of us has to call out the name of who's going to catch it next what should we play next Sara loves 9-pin you throw the ball and try to knock down the pins mother's finally done her chores too she joins us and we all play making cheese we're not really making cheese it's just what we call spinning
