Default 2009 Honda Accord....on the shift?

2009 Honda Accord 4 cylinder, 5 speed - this car loves to shift gears all the time. on 2 miles of secondary road the transmission shifted 15 times between 3rd, 4th and 5th gears.... is this normal for this car? even on the highway, at 65mph the car will usually shift 2 or 3 times on even the smallest grade.

Its normal but you could also be confusing the torque converter locking as a shift. it locks up on the highway to improve efficiency. when a greater load is placed on it it unlocks which is probably the "shift" you feel on slight grades.
