Emily calls these kids her, "bef friends."

I hosted playgroup today! Not much to report, but I think it was a pretty fun time.

I tackled the library again this week!
My sweet friend, Jaimi, came up with a brilliant idea for library day. She has a son, Jackson, who is Emily's age. She has a daughter who is fourteen months old. She threw out the idea of one of us taking the older kids to the library and one of us staying at home and keeping the little ones and then switching the next week. I jumped on the idea!!!! A brilliant idea, that worked out perfect. I took Jackson and Emily to the library this week. They did great!!!!!!!!!!!!! They listened and participated. I was calm, cool and collected! The children's librarian really does a great job at keeping the children's attention. She is LOUD and animated. When I say loud, I mean loud. I am sure that the houses and offices around the library get to hear the story too.
Jaimi even blessed me by letting Emily stay and play with Jackson the rest of the afternoon so I could cook and clean for the guests today.

Thanks for taking Jackson to the Library. He had so much fun with Emily yesterday. He didn't want me to take her home...Great times!

Glad the library visit went better. What a wonderful idea that works out for everyone.
Hi - just came across your blog from Kelly's blog and was intriqued when I saw your post title about library take two! We just attempted our 1st library trip last week and lets just say it didn't go well - so it made me feel better that it definitely isn't just me with my!

I actually went back and found your original post too about your last library trip to read what happened...hahaha. I feel your pain - my daughter is 2 and just has complete meltdowns too at the worst possible times. I actually did a post too on my blog about our library adventure too - too funny not to post.

Love your blog - your girls are just precious!

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.
