Our Visit To South Arkansas

I was able to stay at my parents several days last week. Steve was not able to go because he had to work.
Sarah Kate is sitting in this chair that used to belong to my Dad when he was a little boy.
A local vet has deer for children to enjoy. The girls loved feeding them deer corn. Emily would say, "hey sweetie, I'm just a nice girl." The girls may have a disease now. They would let the deer eat from their hand and then I would see the girls standing there with their hands in their mouths. (Mostly SK)

The girls would have stayed here all night long if we would have let them. Emily cried when we left. She LOVES animals!
Then, we went for chips and salsa and Mexican food. Ohhhhh it was good!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Look who likes salsa as much as her mama. She would lick the salsa off the chip.

Here is Emily with two of her best friends at VBS, Sarah Grace and Alex.

Yesterday, I took Emily to see Ramona and Beezus. WE LOVED IT! I am so thankful for a good, clean, sweet movie!!!! Lots of things we could take away from that movie!

I went and saw Ramona and Beezus this weekend too! I really liked it and I went with a friend of mine and we cried through almost the whole thing. It was a good wholesome movie and we could definitely use more of those!

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.
