A Week in Review

This past week was pleasant and relaxed. No more shuttling children to practice and games, just a week of wide open nothingness.

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.


Caroline built a tent playhouse over the clothesline with rag blankets, towels, and sheets. It didn't stay up long though because the weather turned into a drizzly-overcast-back-east-kind-of-rainy week and because we didn't want to kill the newly sprouted grass. The girlies enjoyed having a kitty in a bucket and a sand plum snack in their private dwelling.

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!
