A Great Week

 We have had a very busy week, but also a really good week.  Yesterday, I took Emily to a birthday party for her beautiful friend, Summer.  I had planned to just drop Emily and her friend Sarah Grace off and go home, but I ended up staying.  I stayed because Sarah Kate was having the time of her life and also because I was afraid my girls might break their arms, legs or neck on the trampoline.  
 Emily had several friends at the party that she loves. Here is Alex.

 Summer the birthday girl!
 The girls had a really good time.  Our back yard is fenced in and has nearly nothing in it.  We have one tree about the thickness of my big thumb and a slide made for a one year old.  The girls did not know what to do with the fun and freedom of this yard!

 I can't get enough of the beautiful trees that are budding here.
 Sarah Kate went to the dentist.  She was such a good girl!
Emily had a school program on Monday and she did a fantastic job!  We were so proud of her.  She had some speaking lines and she did perfect!  Steve's parents came to visit us for a few days.  We had a really good time with them.  I was so glad that they got to see Emily perform, meet her teacher and see her school.


That budding tree is beautiful! I am impressed with SK laying so still at the dentist...we still haven't gone and D is 4. :-/

Our flowers have started blooming here and the trees are budding as well! It was a pretty good week except for today since we had to put one of our 5 year-old dog's to sleep.

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.
