My Visit to L.A

I grew up in South Arkansas, also known as L.A.-Lower Arkansas. I took the girls there last week to visit my parents. We had a WONDERFUL and relaxing time. Friday morning we went to a local park. The girls loved the merry-go -round.
Saturday Morning Daddy took Emily fishing. My Dad has taken me fishing many times in my life. I LOVE to fish!!! I am glad Emily can enjoy this sport with her Daddy and Granddaddy. We fished at White Oak State Park. It is a great place to visit.

My Daddy caught a little fish.

We're hoping to get back to the States this summer and spend some time with grandparents- 2x in a year is almost unheard of! I think it's wonderful you live so close and can hop in the car and visit!! Sweet memories!

I lived in Camden until I was 12, and my grandparents lived on White Oak Lake! I fished there many, many times. Thanks for sharing pictures!

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.
