it looks like . I live in a little house called a long house or even a cabin maybe. Many of my neighbor friends live in the

same kind of home I love to listen to the song birds in the

morning when I wake up because they sing very softly.

Most of the people who go to my church are the people who live in my neighborhood and some people who aren't in my neighborhood. My mother told me that no matter how many people go to church we would always go . Here is a picture to show you what my church kind of looks like.

If a colonial child brakes a colonial law they get punished in a very bad way they get taken out to a barn and they get paddled with a big paddle . Many children would get punished not only with a paddle but they would have to help around the farm if they were women they wouldn’t only work around the house they would also work with the boys and there fathers and many other people . I would never brake a colonial law . Here is a picture to show you what they would get punished with.
