Country Living

So I've been walking like a fiend trying to always meet my base goal of 10,000 steps but really trying to hit 15,000 steps a day.  Some days it gets tedious in the heat so I've been taking my good camera to give me something to do that is more enjoyable than just walking.  Here's a few of my recent favorites!

I followed this fellow for awhile as he glided down stream with a fish in his mouth

Kia followed me one day

some neighbors

a few more

few more neighbors

I just love this picture.  this is a neighborhood dog.  He was a stray but now everyone on that end takes care of him.

This view just soothes my soul.

True story...
recently I was walking down the road literally thanking God that we live in the country where we have space and peace....everything is safe...and I hear a crack so I ran and the corner of this branch just grazed my shoulder.....LOL  I started cracking up!  Not sure how safe I am!  BTW this branch is about 6 feet long or longer  I moved it off the road and it was heavy/cumbersome   I'm glad I ran!

So my average daily steps for the past two weeks have been over 11,000 and in 14 days I walked 77 miles!   Having the Fitbit keeps me more active-for sure.

Summer is on- our oldest is home from college.  Homeschool is done for the year except for ONE MORE Math book for Shad.

Speaking of Shad he FINALLY got his US Citizenship after 11 years!!!!!!  We've had so much trouble since my husband did not travel with me Shad came in on a Legal Immigrant status.  (the girls had no issue since Jon was with me and had their Certificate of Citizenship in weeks after coming to the US)  So with Shad there was one thing after another....everything was messed up.  Even his readoption in the US got messed up on a local level....   In the end I had to contact Senator Marco Rubio's office and with their help we finally were told the paperwork was done and on it's way to us.  Thank you Sen Rubio!!!!  Once it is in our hands we are going to throw Shad a party!

Hope you enjoy my pictures!
