6 Weeks Left

With only 6 weeks left in the state's, I've been trying to do things that I can't do overseas. It's the same with food. Let's just face it, there are some foods you just can't get where we live. Like, for example, cheese. I'm not talking paneer--you can get that in plenty and it's quite delicious! I'm talking about good cheddar cheese or feta that has such a unique, yummy taste that makes meals oh so much better. :) Technically you can buy these things, but I'm not willing to spend $15 on a small block. No thanks.

Besides cheese and other foods, we've also been trying to figure out some fun things to do before we leave. I know it sounds silly, but shopping is one of them. There is plenty of shopping where we're going, but it's just not the same. In America, you can browse through a store just to look and never be met by a store clerk--which has some perks and frustrations, however, being followed by an employee like a needy puppy has it's pros and cons as well. Truthfully, it takes some getting used to.

Speaking of puppies...playing with dogs is something Joshua loves to do (as I've expressed before), so I imagine some "play time" is in order in the coming weeks. :)

This dog's name is Hank and we hung out with him and his family when we went to our friend's farm. I like how he posed for me in this picture. :) 

Regardless of what happens in the next 6 weeks, it'll be great! Hope you are having a great week!
