Mother's Day Weekend

I am so blessed to have had my Mother here visiting the past few Mother's Days. We have had the best time shopping/looking this weekend. I am thankful to have a mama who is funny and a lot of fun to be around. My mother would be chawed for people to see her in these house shoes. She said to not get her feet in the picture. She was just trying to get comfortable after church.

Steve has been so kind this weekend to give me a break from cooking. He grilled hamburgers last night and cooked roast for us today. Kelly, Scott and Harper joined us for dinner. I think things taste better when you are not the one who cooked them. He also cleaned up the kitchen. Can't beat that!

The preschool choir sang this morning, under Kelly's leadership. They did great!

This week at preschool is "bring your bike to school." This caused panic for me because Emily did not have a bicycle. She has a little plastic three wheeled riding toy that is on it's last wheel. I know it is strange that she did not have a bike, but we really don't have a good set-up with our backyard or driveway for her to ride. We made a trip to Wal-Mart this afternoon and got her a bike. She LOVES it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
