If you missed any of our posts this past week, be sure to scroll back through the site to get caught up. This week, Jennifer Beckstrand talked about the important role a grandmother plays in her new book – and her own joy of being a grandma. Karen Anna Vogel took us to Smicksburg, PA while Leslie Gould taught us about how the Amish choose to travel when it’s time for a getaway of their own. Our blog host, Suzanne Woods Fisher shared with us the tradition of the Amish haystack, and gave us a recipe for Potato Haystack Casserole. And if you’ve ever wondered about how buggies travel the roads while safely obeying traffic laws, visit this week’s Ask the Amish post.
