Next you see our son playing the Dombura.
It was really interesting listening to her share about what is was like living in Kazakhstan. I'm guessing our son would say the best part was the bread (we got to eat it) but he did enjoy playing the Dombra too!
This is the Kazakhstan Flag.
The Kazakhstan flag has sky blue background. In the middle of the flag there is a golden sun with thirty two rays and this sun is placed over an golden eagle. On the hoisting side of the flag there is a golden ornamentation. The ratio of the flag 's width to its length is 1:2. This national flag was adopted first on 4 th June 1994. The sky color signifies several Turkic people and also indicates the sky god. The ornamentation stands for the cultural heritage of old Kazakhstan while the eagle indicates to the golden rule of Genghis Khan empire in Kazakhstan.
This is a flower from one of the bushed in our back yard.

Saturday we received this trampoline for free through our local Craig's List! It was raining so we put it in the garage. Today our son was recovering from a stomach virus, but asked if we would put it up so he could play on it tomorrow when he was feeling better. He went out with his pillow and laid on it for a little while. Hopefully he will be back to his normal active self in the morning!
