VBS and a Visit

This week we have had VBS. We are having a delightful time. Here is our friend Dorothy pushing Wells. When I see the babies in the Bye Bye Buggy I have to laugh.
Sarah Kate cries her head off when the ride is over and they take her out. She has a major meltdown.
Hester is one of our most favorite nursery workers. My girls have always loved her. One of the men working in VBS told me that Sarah Kate looked like a sheep dog. That will really bless a mother's heart. I had to laugh and agree with him.
I am working in the baby room this week and loving every minute of it. I LOVE babies and have ever since I was a baby.
Emily is having such a great week. She is not in the official VBS yet, but they are doing great activities with these little ones.
I have been so fortunate this Summer to get to see so many old friends. My OBU friend, Christy came to visit on Sunday with her sweet girls. It was so good to see them. Christy is one of the sweetest people in the world and so thoughtful.
These are her girls, Ashley, Carley and Malley. They are so cute and were so good with my girls.

Hi Laurie - Everytime I walk the first floor halls here at Arkansas Children's Hospital I think of you. There is a lot of artwork that reminds me so much of what you did with the girls.

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.
