This past Friday, we loaded up at 4:00 and headed out of town to spend the weekend in the outdoors! I'll admit, it was a stretch for me. Weekends are for laundry, grocery shopping for the week, finishing up lesson plans if needed. I had to get all that done, in addition to packing all our food for the weekend, and be ready to walk out the door when my students did on Friday afternoon.
But it was so worth it! I had no idea how very much I needed to get out of the city, until we started passing through sleepy little towns like this. As we approached this town, each Turk waved as we drove by. At one point, a man hailed CC to stop the van. We stopped. Then he looked up to a roof top, and a shovel came flying off the roof. We appreciated the warning.
