Tree Monkey

During furlough I had the privilege of working with my good friend Jim (Aka Tree Monkey) on a few tree jobs. One big difference was that we had chain saws and we wore shoes.

Water slide

Thanks to Mont, one of the youth hostel parents here in Ukarumpa, our family enjoyed a giant slip n' slide today.  Mont's daughter sold home made popsicles and kids from all around the mission center lined up for their turn to rocket down the hill.

Our first time to the market.  Jessica loves to come along and pick out flowers.  It takes much longer to buy our produce here but we really enjoy the freshness and variety.
