I do not believe the Amish children wear brightly colored clothing like what is shown in your picture above. This perhaps is a picture of some prairie children. The Amish family looks more like this.........Wink

The Amish make some wonderful baked goods!!!grinsmiley We bought pies from them up at my camp. The lady that was selling them spoke very softly. I was about 13 at the time. I was in my bathing suit and her young son kept looking at me. It felt really wierd, lol. Wonder what the heck was going throught his mind? lol. He had a little grin on his face. He was so cute and sweet looking. I'll never forget that. Also they came here to the city at the local farmers market with some HUGE delicious cookies, and pies. They came in an old school bus.

Some Amish teens go out into the regular world amongst us to see what it is like. A lot of them leave the life because it is to strict for them. But the majority of them stay with the Amish.

Yeah I saw a show once where they put several Amish teens in a house w/ several wordly kids.... it sure was interesting to watch.... Anyway, they all went out on the town and the amish teens were just in awe of everything there is in the word and even some of the fruit in the market they had never seen before!

I heard that when you get to a certain age you get to go out to the world and most of them leave, some go back....

Carol...I watched that too. The Amish way of life is changing drastically. We ate at a Ponderosa Steakhouse on our way up to camp a couple of months ago, and there were two families of Amish eating there! You just wouldn't have seen that ever, even 5-10 years ago.

I've had pretty good luck with their baked goods. Never had pie, but I used to buy bread and some kind of pastry from them when they would go around house to house where I lived at the time in Pennsylvania (this was quite a few years ago). Very delicious, but you had to eat it rather fast as it doesn't last like store bread does.
I can't remember now what was in the pastry, but it was some sort of fruit filling, and was great.
I remember it was always the young people who brought it around, so I dunno if it was for a church thing or what, but it seems to me they came by every Sunday. Might have been Saturday, I can't remember.

The Amish have a flower stand here. I think they have a fruit one too. The flowers are so pretty. I often wonder how they get them to grow so big and bushy.:unsure:

I lived in the Bloomsburg/Danville area, in northeast PA for a while.

I've seen Amish at stores quite frequently in the past, generally buying things in quantity to take home with them. While they wouldn't own automobiles themselves, it was ok for them to ride with others who had one. Their lifestyles vary from one order to another, just like any other religious order.

It's also interesting to note that, while they don't serve in the military, apply for social security benefits, or get insurance, they also accept no form of financial assistance from the government, but rely solely on their community and bretheren.

There are also different sects, so to just say someone is "Amish" and therefore his beliefs are the same as all other Amish is about the same as saying that someone is "Christian", and therefore believes exactly like all other Christians.

Wikipedia has a fairly good informative piece about them;

Hi! Wave
I actually know some Amish people
and many former Amish people.
The rules of each group can really vary.
I know one lady who grew up Amish
30 years ago and their family would
go to amusement parks and ride the roller coaster!
She said her dad's beard would be flooooowing back in the wind! Laughing

The Amish can be so friendly and kind to "English" people-
that's what they call anyone who is not Amish. grinsmiley
But- just try leaving their group
and it's a VERY different story! It's sad.

The real strict ones can be really mean. On 20/20 many years ago this one guy said when he was a kid his grandfather ran over his toe with his rocking chair because he spoke when he wasn't supposed to. Another kid said his father stuck a pen in his tongue at the dinner table because he talked. It all depends on the order I guess.

Yeah. Depends on the order and depends on the people.
I have learned that you can't stereo- type anyone.
I know one former Amish dad who is extremely loving and kind to his children but very emotionless.
But- not all Amishmen are emotionless.

My father sells machinery to the Amish. He's pretty gut friends with several families. He gets quite a bit of the machinery he buys repaired at Millers Repair Shop in Indiana.
I've talked to a few on the telephone.

I haven't been to Amish country since I was five! I was in awe because a family had the biggest trampoline I'd ever seen. Seriously, that thing was huge.

In Germany we don't talk too much about the Amish, it's just too far away. But when I lived in kentucky for a year I had a friend whose parents organized the Bluegrass Festival. I helped there doing a gate shift - selling tickets to the cars drivin in. Suddenly a big coach pulled up in front of me and a man looked out with this big beard and his dark cloth, asking me for tickets. I was so suprised! I thought he belonged to a theater group - I'd never seen anyone like him.
