I have never been much for sitting still. When I became an office manager and accountant, I almost went mad sitting at a desk indoors all day. I am so glad I picked up a camera in 2004. Now, my job keeps me active. I get to meet new people and photograph all sorts of things. Photographing the paintball tournaments, hiking, chasing kids, loading and unloading all my gear...it all keeps me active.

I shot this informal family shoot last Sunday. This is my daughter's mother in law's twin brother's daughter in law and grandchild. Did you get that? LOL!!

The little girl loves to be outside playing. I wish all kids would spend more time outside playing. The state of Georgia is one of the leading states in childhood obesity. The responsibility falls on the parent. It is up to us to teach them good eating habits and to keep them moving. Not only does it give them a chance for a healthier and longer life, but it is so much better for their mental health too.

Thank you for the spotlight Donald!!

    Wonderful shot for the theme, Regenia!! They are both having a fantastic time. You are soooo right about getting kids away from the electronic gadgets, mindless games, and more into sports and outdoor activities. My little granddaughters play soccer and softball on their school teams, swim, and run all around the little hamlet where they live. They do not own a computer, I-Pad, etc. The closest they come to any of that is watching a child's movie before they go to bed. It IS the responsibility of the parents....and way too many parents toss the kids these gadgets to keep 'em out of their way. Electronic babysitters, that's what they are. Thanks for posting this timely picture. It's perfect for the theme!!!!!

    Thank you so much everyone! I so agree with you Patty. Fast food is a huge issue too. I think they are ok on an occasion but too many use them as an everyday part of their diet. The schools have cut back on recess and PE as well. Children were not made to sit still and quiet all the time. They need time to run, play, and explore.

    Perfect for the theme, Reg! I remember an Alaskan trip with a young teen, who wouldn't look up from her electronic game to see the beauty all around her. TRAGIC! If I had been that parent, I would have forbidden electronic gadgets on that family trip, but parents today are afraid to set limits.

    think the problem exists all over the country, Regenia...When I was growing up we did not have all of the frills and electronics that kids have access to now...While technology has its good points to progress, it also has its drawbacks.. .This is perfect for the theme, Regenia...Love it!
