On the Road to Recovery

 I feel like we have had the house of sickness lately.  Last Tuesday night, Emily got REALLY 104.2 fever kind of sick.  I just knew it was strep.  We saw the Dr. on Wednesday and he tested her for strep and it came back negative.  He said that she had a virus that was causing the sore throat and fever.  She was down for about three days.  She got well on Friday and SK got sick on Saturday.  I was getting SK ready for a birthday party and she began crying and not being herself at all.  I took her temperature and it was 102.  She was just pitiful acting.  She groaned and cried for 48 hours.  I took her to the Dr yesterday, thinking she had the same thing as Emily but she had an ear infection.  That explained the waking up EVERY hour for two nights.  She is on an antibiotic now and seems back to normal.  
I made a little stop by the store after the Dr visit yesterday and got these pretty flowers to go on our kitchen table.  I needed some cheer!

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.
