The Fire It was a clear day and you could see for miles. From her flat on the 23rd floor, Rania texted one of her best friends from back home and they talked about facts.
Education in s Education In s 1 When and where were you born? I was born the 12th of October, in Lincoln, VT. Five generations of Purintons have been born and raised in Lincoln.
I had two brothers, John and George. John was five years older than me and George was three years older. John died a couple years ago, but George is still alive and well and living up in West Lincoln making maple syrup.
My father worked up in the woods clearing land and he also helped out on a farm. My mother mostly stayed at home and cooked and cleaned, like most women did in those days.
She would often get together with the ladies from town to bake and sew while sharing the latest gossip. I remember getting up around 5: There was always plenty of work for us kids to do. The boys always did the hard labor, for example, the wood.
The girls mostly stayed inside, helping their mother with whatever chores she needed to have done. We only had three boys in our family, so what I remember about what girls did is based on what our friend Carol Ann Rose told us. Carol was two years older than me but she was really good friends with all three of us.
Well, like I said, every morning we would get up at 5: No school meant that there was more work that needed to be done and we needed to get an early start on it. One thing that our parents taught us was to spend time with God every morning and that was the most important thing.
After our morning quiet time we would have a warm breakfast, although some were much bigger than others. I remember spending a large amount of the day in school, then coming home and doing chores until dinnertime.
Dinnertime was followed by time we spend reading or listening to the radio together, most of the reading was from the Good Book the Bible.
The latest I ever remember staying up during my childhood was 9: I remember having a terrible a terrible stomachache from eating so much of that delicious food.
As far as boredom goes, there was absolutely no time for it. We spent every moment not in school working. Boredom was not tolerated by our parents. There was very little leisure time, but what leisure time we did have was spent with the neighbor kids, playing baseball, going swimming, stuff like that.
Easter and Christmas were the most important holidays in our family.
The mornings of those days were spent in church and reading the Bible. Family would often come to visit for Christmas. I remember many a white Christmas spent outside with our cousins from New York throwing snowballs at each other.
I was very fortunate, I was very healthy when I was young. I had a small case of the measles when I was 10 and had chicken pox when I was six. Other than that I had a very healthy childhood. My parents were born and raised here.
Our parents were very strict when it came to dating. There was also very little time for it. I went to grammar school in a one-room schoolhouse in Lincoln. Especially in a small Vermont town, people did not have much money, not like they do now.
Well, it was a one-room schoolhouse with a mudroom as you walked in. When you walked into the classroom, you saw a big blackboard that stretched across the front of the room, then there was a furnace directly in the center of the room with four rows of desks around it.
Since it was a small town, we had an outhouse, which was darn cold in the winter.Teaching Literacy in the Primary School; B Pages: 7 Words: This is just a sample.
