Harvest Festival in Plimouth
By Phyllis Naegeli
  

1     Samuel woke to the sun shining on his face. It was going to be a warm fall day in Plimouth. He looked over at his sister Anna who was starting to stir. "Good morning, Anna," said Samuel. "Did you sleep well?"
 
2     Seven-year-old Anna groaned and opened her eyes. "Good morning, Samuel," she said in a sleepy tone.
 
3     The two children rolled off their straw-filled mats and pulled them over against the wall. Samuel reached up to two hooks on the wall and pulled down their clothes. He handed Anna her clothes and went into the small closet to put on his knee-length blue pants and white shirt. When he returned to the bedroom, Anna had on her green dress and white cap. Together they headed outside.
 
4     There were many chores to do each morning in 1621. Samuel, who was ten, headed out to fetch water from the brook, and Anna gathered firewood for the daily cooking.
 
5     When the children returned home, their mother, Martha, was in the kitchen preparing breakfast. "Good morning, Mother," said Samuel.
 
6     "Good morning, children," she replied.
 
7     Just then their father, Henry, came in from his morning work outside. "The crops are doing well," he said to his wife as he kissed her on the cheek. Martha and Henry sat down at the small wooden table. Samuel and Anna served their parents breakfast and then sat down with them.
 
8     "We have many things to do to get ready for the harvest festival today," Martha said.
