It started with an update and sermon from missionaries in Istanbul. They've been there 17 years and still loving it! A city of 17 million, 10 times the size of New York City.
Monday we picked mulberries and sand plums. While we were occupied in the prickly plum thickets, Meg ate half of our picked berry cup making a mess all over herself.
Tuesday morning I awoke to a beautiful sunrise glowing into our bedroom windows.
Riley sold his four remaining African geese on craigslist.
Friday evening we attended a lovely wedding in eastern Kansas. It was a perfect night to be outside strolling the lawn, munching on sandwiches, chips, salad, homemade ice cream, and cake. The little people frolicked in the wide open grass and slept soundly in all manner of positions!
On our way home Saturday, we stopped in the big city to shop a little, and brought back a trampoline, basketball goal, and volleyball set.
And that is a simple week in the life of the Bowmans!
