The Pilgrims' Thanksgiving

When the pilgrims were sailing to the Americas, they were all crammed into their ship. They had to use a bucket for going to the bathroom and couldn't empty it very often. I can't imagine going 65 days without dong anything! I would hate getting squished against the side of the boat and getting bruised and cut because of the waves...

I hate doing chores now and I can't believe how much the kids had to do back then. I don't think I would be able to deal with all those chores! The kids had to wear so many layers of clothing back then and the boys had to wear dresses until they were 6. They didn't have very mush food to eat either. I like a variety of foods to eat, and I think the pilgrims would too!
