Colonial Times
Diary of Ella Le

One day, my sister , my brother and I got up and got dressed so we could work. We Do not go to school because  our mom does not have enough money .  I  usually milk the cow , pump the butter churn  and  help  mom with the Landry. My younger sister  would  usually gather eggs from the chickens  and help mom cook. My brother  would  usually  garden,  repair barns and house,tend the fire and  since he is the youngest he would have to empty the  chamber pot . Work is hard but when were done we get  to play. I love my life because I have the balance  of work and play.
