Let the Good Times ROLL!

The girls love to watercolor.

I do believe I have discovered the most fun toy/ride ever. The highlight of our Branson trip was discovering this Wiggle Scooter.
The kiosk showed pictures of women on these things. I let the girls ride and then I had to get on one. I fell in love. I stayed on it longer than any of the children around.
Steve's parents bought this one for us/ME. I have enjoyed it a lot more than the girls.
I have been tempted to ride it when the girls are at school but I decided that would be too weird. I could just see Steve bringing a co-worker by the house, opening up the garage door and them finding me riding the scooter in the garage.
The ad at the kiosk read: "Great for building upper body muscles." hey....that is what I am doing.

I have never seen something like this. It hasn't made its way up north, I guess. I really could use some muscle help too.

We bought 2 about 5 years ago, and I had the same problem! I loved those things. My husband and I used to have races at night after the children were in bed! Best toys we ever purchased! HA Enjoy!

Complicated

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 chu

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.
