After two years of planning, including 2 highly-disappointing cancelled African trips due to my cancer treatments last year, in a few hours Kim and I are FINALLY boarding our airplane for a dream 10-day safari in Botswana, followed by a week visiting our missionary friends in Kenya.
In case you don't know where Botswana is (no shaming here...I'm terribly geographically-challenged...I only know because I've dreamed of going here for so long!), it's the country just above South Africa on the globe.
Our church hosted a 5K (3.1 miles, for those non-runners out there...) over the weekend, in conjunction with the annual Sulphur Springs Community Days, and our oldest grandson 8-year-old Karter wanted to sign up.
Maria's Florida home is very near several natural springs that feed into the nearby Suwannee River. And since we enjoy checking out the flora and fauna wherever we go, we spent one morning visiting a couple of the local springs.
We had barely rolled into Fanning Springs, Florida (the word "into" is used very loosely...you pretty much roll "into" and "out of" Fanning Springs at the same time...) before we were scoping out our afternoon ice cream stop.
