Girls Night Out

Last night I went with the girls in our Sunday school class to see "The Time Traveler's Wife." We had a great time being out and being at the movies. I loved the fellowship but did not love the movie. I like realistic movies. I look forward to us doing this again soon. I love the girls in this group!!!!!!!!! I am so thankful for what each one of them bring to our SS class and my life.
Emily had her very first dance class this week. She was soooo excited. But.......Emily wanted to do her "own " thing in the class. The moves she liked, she continued to do them after they had moved on to the next thing. She kept migrating to the big mirrors to see herself a little better. I spent most of the time on the side, motioning for her to listen to the teacher and get back on her tape. We are going to have a "sit down talk" before next week's class.

I bet y'all had a great time. I am so sad I was unable to go. We will have to do it again so I can join next time!

I'm sure Emily was precious at dance. I can totally see her just in her own little world! Such a personality!
It looks like you all had a great time. It just totally makes me laugh about Emily doing her own thing. Too cute.

I am laughing about Emily. I just love that girl's spunk.

I am coming SOON to see Emily dance. Remember she told me I could come but "not to laugh". She knows me. :-)I'm afraid that's one promise I can not keep.

I commented over on Kelly's blog too, but it looks like you gals had SO much fun!

I'm so excited to hear that your Emily is a little dancer... a girl after my own heart. (I danced for 12 years and teach the little ones on occasion now.) She sounds so spunky and cute! As a teacher, I always get a kick out of the girls that do their own thang'. She's just having too much fun to follow everyone else!

Emily makes me laugh...her dance class personality sounds like Lowrey's. I couldn't keep her away from the mirror...she was entranced by being able to see herself so well and so often. And she was not interested in doing any of the simple moves, only the ones that looked difficult, but she couldn't quite master but didn't know it of course.
I love hearing Emily and SK stories...they are just dolls.

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.
