Five Favorite Photos

My family is spread out all over the state and the country, if you include my nieces and nephews, so texting is a great way for us to keep in touch. This week, the texts were flying and loaded with pictures. It occurred to me how fortunate we are nowadays that, no matter the distance, we are still a part of each other's lives.  

Here are some of my favorite photos that came through this week.

1. One of my brothers, Mark, trains German Shorthaired Pointers for hunting. One of his dogs had puppies this week, and he said I can have as many as I want!;) Dan said no. 

2. My brother Andy is the family naturalist and artist. We were exchanging photos when I asked him to help me identify a feather I found.  (It was a turkey feather LOL). This is an eagle feather he came upon one day and posed it for a picture.

3. My dad texted me this photo that he came across in one of his albums.  Me (squinting in the sun), my mom and my grandmother.

4. Luke texted this photo that he took of the baseball team that he coaches.  Before each game the boys gather in prayer. He said it is their own idea, but I know that he is an awesome mentor to these teens.

5. Saving the best for last, my beautiful niece Sami (daughter #1 of brother naturalist and artist) upon receiving her White coat! She just passed the halfway mark towards earning her degree in chiropractic medicine. 

These are just a few of the photos from the week that remind me how thankful I am to be a part of this awesome family.

Texting family is one of the best things about technology. What great pictures you've had this week. I'd want a puppy too. But sadly the answer would be no.

You are blessed with a wonderful family Karne. Good reasons to celebrate.

These are all awesome photos. Little puppy bellies are the cutest! lol
I am so thankful to be able to keep in touch easily with both family and friends.

I don't have a phone but texting would be great and I love that you keep in touch with your family that way. My family is scattered all over the country too, so we keep in touch thru email, and FB. Those pups are the cutest. I think you need one! :)

Oh, Karen, you had some very special photos to share. I especially liked the one of you, your mom and your grandmother. What a treasure. I loved meeting your family members and how you identified each one by their interests. Very special.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Great way of detailing your fave five. How could you resist those puppies?! lol.

I love texting, too. But I normally use it for work. I am gong to experiment with family and see what happens. Thanks for the idea.

Too bad you couldn't have weekend visits with those precious puppies.

That is funny about the turkey feather!

Have a great week!
