One year ago today Emily cut off all her hair. Actually, as she said, "I cut a pony tail." Look at it today...HOORAY! It has grown. I have only gotten it trimmed once since that dreadful day. I have cautiously let her use scissors again, but I watch her like a hawk.

Sarah Kate is having terrible allergy eyes. They water ALL day! I have started giving her a little allergy medicine in the mornings. We may have to make a visit to the M.D about this.

Steve parents are in town for a few days. We love their visits.

If you have a school supplies store near you for teachers, stop in and get a book that has reproducible sheets for scissors skills- the kids can cut lines to the castle, paths for the dogs to the doghouse, etc. after they color the page. Perhaps that would help her focus at a set spot with a "planned" activity.

What a blessing the grandparents are nearby; I had posted a picture of my baby girl the other day on the private blog and my dad wrote "I need a hug." Poor guy- we've whisked these grandkids far away again!

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.
