Congratulations to my Graduate!

I am so thankful that Emily has attended a WONDERFUL preschool. These teachers and staff have loved on her so much over the past four years. She loves all of them!

Emily is crazy about Ms. Donita and these birds, Einstein and Abigail. They lead them in chapel each week. Emily has learned so much about Jesus during this time. She has told me through the year that those birds were"REAL." This morning as we were going home she said, Those birds are real, they are, I saw their feet in a picture....." The only thing Emily cared about this morning was ME seeing Abigail and Einstein. She told me I was going to get to meet them. She was thrilled.

Emily's best friends at school. Korbyn and Summer.
They showed a video that made me cry like crazy. They asked each child what they wanted to be when they grow up. Emily's answer was a vet. Bless her heart, she LOVES animals.

I swear I just started crying when I read the part where they ask Emily what she wanted to be and she answered "vet"! That is just precious for her to have such insight at such an early age! She is so sweet Laurie! You and Steve are doing such a great job with her!

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.
