Who has a Fitbit or some other brand of exercise watch?
Jon and I do & it has changed our lives....
If you see either or us walking aimlessly around our yard or on the street you know we are trying to hit that 10,000th step!  My basic goal is 10,000 steps a day but I really want to hit 15,000 a day!  I can get about 6,000 with no real effort but to go over that requires some walking time.  

Jon has only had one for a week- we found out on Sundays after TWO services he had walked about 6,000 steps.  Yes he is one of "those" type preachers who can not be still while he is preaching.  His average is usually over 15,000 steps a day because he walks so much at work.

I've been doing a lot of walking in the parks lately.  It's so hot and dry that I try and go early but can't always do that!

We recommend getting some type of sports watch - it will make you think about moving more than not having one!!  So far this year I've lost 8 pounds that has stayed off:)

Our oldest is home from college and I've just about wrappped up homeschool for this year.  Shad is still a year ahead in his studies ( we use a curriculum) but it's been a hard year being his teacher and mom.  He is very smart but he is also very lazy!  Because everything comes so easy to him- it seems he doesn't want to put any effort into things.  Next year I'm thinking of using Florida Virtual School so he is obligated to a teacher instead of me!  

Sam and Sarah are both doing good with Lifeskills. We've seen some big improvements. Sarah is saying Daddy all the time now.  She really uses it at night time to get one more kiss or prayer from Daddy...he can't resist her!  

I've missed blogging but I've been so busy and it seems so much work to get the old laptop out!  But I'm going to try and do better:)

  1. I have heard a lot of good things about Florida Virtual school. And you can add your own extras to it. I have a child who has constantly been in trouble and have told her that is her next option.
