We also got many compliments on how well the boys behaved. "Oh, they have to learn how to behave and sit still," I'd say with a smile. "An Amish church service is three hours long!"

  1. I'm not sure if I'd enjoy Plain Faith or not, although it does sound unusual. I'll have to read more about it before deciding.

  5. It's hard enough for a child to sit through a normal church length church service. I know, my Mommom was a minister. Love her tons, but she could talk forever. :-) But 3 hours? You're going to get a lot of squirmy butts!

  9. I just found myself a book on Amish community last week! When I told my kids that Amish services were 3 and almost half a day long they just about died....not sure if I should be concerned or tickled by their reaction ha ha ha XD

  15. Three hours long??? I could never sit in church that long. My feet would hurt. I would want to giggle. No way for children to do it. Have fun reading this week.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
