A First for Emily and Playgroup

I hosted playgroup today! We had a great little group! I did not get a picture of everyone and some of the pictures I did take were of people blinking, chewing or turning their heads. Here are a few good ones.

When we went to my parents last weekend, we left Emily there at my parents for a few days. This was a first for Emily. She has never stayed by herself at their house before. She loves being with them and she loves being at their house. My mother said she only said she missed us once. She loves to feed their fish in the goldfish pond. They also have horses across the street that she loves to watch and feed. My parents church was having Vacation Bible School this week and so she got to go to that. She had the best time and loved her teacher and the kids in her group!
The visit was so good for her and she had a wonderful time.
The highlight for her was seeing a Copperhead snake on their patio. I was ready for her to come home after hearing about this!!!

My parents had an appointment in Little Rock yesterday, so I drove there and picked her up. Sarah Kate and Emily were soooooooo happy to see each other. I just knew they would sleep all the way home, but they talked to each other instead.

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.
