Highlight of Emily's Week

I teach art classes during the week and Emily LOVES for the girls to come to her house. She asks everyday if the girls are coming. I have girls two days a week and a boy one day when Emily naps. Emily does not even know he comes for art. But she wouldn't miss the girls for anything. She does art with them in her high chair. ( I have to use that so she will stay confined and out of their way.) I can tell she feels so grown up. She wants to do just exactly what they are doing. I love having these sweet little girls in my home each week. I really think Emily might be learning a little art and lot about being a young lady.

In the Tuesday class, they like to play in Emily's room, but she likes it more than they do.

I thought it was very strange that those girls were wearing plaid shirts. Especially Blair - because her bow didn't match her plaid shirt and that did not seem like something her mom would let her do - and then I figured out they were smocks!!!
I know Emily does love to have those BIG girls at her house!

Wow! You are a brave soul to have all those little girls at once! Emily will be a great artist someday just like her Mom!

Oh I love that you have kids come over for art lessons. i hope that I can do that when I am married and have babies. I remember my mom tutoring high school math students and wanting to hang out while they learned. I remember thinking "wow, my mom is cool". hahahha

Fun! Guy and I taught the 3 and 4 year olds Sunday for Scott and Kelly and Allison and Blair talked about you and art classes and how much they love it. We were drawing and coloring, and one of the girls turned her crayon on its side to make the sky (you know how it gives it a funny texture that way). I told her that was a creative thing to do, and she told me that you taught her to do that.

This is so neat!!! I would like to be a part of that weekly class! :) I took art lessons for years growing up, and it's such a good memory. I can still smell the little studio! I'd love to see some of your artwork. I've been painting the name canvases, etc. in acrylic lately, but I really miss oil paints--I think they're so much more fun to work with, but just too messy and time-consuming for me right now.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
