    The planning that goes into such an event must be massive!

    I can attest to the ladies’ frolics. My best friend is Old Order Amish and the ladies on her husband’s side do a monthly ladies’ day. Her mother-in-law has 6 children – 1 daughter and 5 sons. So each month the 6 women, the mother and one of the nieces take turns playing host. The children that are too young to attend school usually tag along and food is taken to share at lunch. Everyone helps out with a project, whether it is cleaning the host’s house in preparation for church or a wedding or possibly helping out with a quilt or maybe even some yard work. It just depends on who’s turn it is to host and what needs done.

    I’ve been to a couple of them and it is a lot of hard work. But there is also a lot of laughter, singing and strengthening of bonds. In fact, my girlfriend’s family has offered to have a ladies day at my place to take care of chores that I can’t perform due to a hip injury.
