Day Full O Fun

I took the girls to a splash park today for the first time ever! They were a little chawed at first. They loved it and I loved watching them. I sat in a shady area and the girls seemed sooo happy to play in the water. It was a win win situation.

E and SK have been in a little dance camp for the past two weeks. They have LOVED every second of it!

Sarah Kate's friend, Neely, was also in the class.

Along with Ella Kate. I loved visiting with their moms during class!!!!
The sad part: When I have asked the girls what they liked the most about dance? The response: "Sitting on the stuffed animals."
The teacher would have them sit on BIG stuffed animals while they waited their turn for one on one instruction.
We could have done that at home for free.

It looks like SK and Emily had a fun time at the splash park, I really wish that we had a splash park here in Macon (Ga). The temperature has been in the 100s, which makes it almost impossible to get out during the middle of the day, but this would be such a wonderful way to escape from the heat...and I think I would enjoy getting out there as well, lol!

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.
