Twinkle Toes' class took a field trip to the Anitkabir, the memorial for Attaturk in our city. (He was the founder of modern Turkey.)

Only one of the folks in this picture was allowed to smile!
We enjoyed touring the grounds and seeing the statues, the tomb, and the museum.

Big Ben was invited to go. His favorite part was getting to see Attaturk's boat and cars. He just couldn't understand why we couldn't climb in that 1930's cadillac.

I asked what time the changing of the guards would be, so the kids could see that.

And so we conclude our field trips for the year! And 2 days...we are off for our field trip to America for the summer!

P. S. I have am beginning to mark each year, as time goes so fast, and one of the things I mark is time for you to come home.

When you said it had been eight years in Turkey, I was floored not believing it could have been that long.

Soon we will be reading of college plans and children leaving home . . . Not meaning to rush that, mind you. :)

Once again, thank you for the blessing you are and allowing us to "visit" with you and your family through your blog.
