Party and the Evening Shoes

On Saturday I took the girls to a party for Sarah Kate's friend, Parker. The girls had a really good time playing and I had a really good time talking to my friends.

Sarah Kate's latest:
Every night when it is time for bed she brushes her teeth, goes to the potty, gets her p.j.s on and puts on a PAIR OF SHOES. I have no idea why. I put shoes beside my bed when we are under a tornado watch at night, but I have never slept in a pair of shoes. I go in after she is sound asleep and take them off. She wears whatever she sees: boots, ballet shoes, sandals. She has even worn a pair of Mary Jane's over footed pajamas.
Oh well.............She is prepared.

I am not pro with the psychology of kids but what striked me first when I read about her bed time routine and sleeping with shoes on was, in all probability she has read a fairy tale or something like that which must have inspired her.I mean it could be anything at all or may be something like this- "good girls who want to meet fairies in their dreams should dress up neatly before going off to sleep." Lol ! I mean total imagination here..!

I love it. I can't explain it but I did the same thing when I was about her age. I eventually grew out of it but I'm sure my mom did not know what to think either.

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.
