Five Dollar Fun

I registered Sarah Kate for Kindergarten this week.  A bittersweet day for sure.

Emily had a little cold/congestion last weekend.  This weekend, she got an ear infection.  Now that their tubes are out, they seem to get lots of ear infections.  We made a trip to the pediatrician on Saturday morning.

While we were waiting at the pharmacy to get the presciption filled, I spotted a Melissa and Doug sticker pad.  I knew this was right up my girl's alley.  I hardly ever buy them something for no reason, but this was too neat to pass up and it was $5.  It was a good buy!!! They have had a lot of fun with it!  Plus it does not make a mess or take up much space!

So cute!  They also had some that were "make a face."  They had them for boys that were "make a pirate."

Melissa & Doug toys are the best! Hope she is better!

I hope Emily is feeling better. Amelia's tubes are out now too and she has gotten double ear infections already. I'm wondering if tubes will be in our future again. Love Melissa & Doug toys. Amelia would love that...she's all about some stickers!

My youngest starts kindergarten this fall, too! So weird!!! I love giving gifts for no reason that just delight the kids! You must have been mom of the year to them! :)

Hope Emily is feeling better! I love the M&D stuff, and we have the sticker pad with earrings, necklaces, etc and it's so cute! Since I'm a nail blogger too, I would love to find the nail one for my daughter! Off to look for it!

Have you ever heard of an essential oil called Melaluca? It's also known as tea tree oil. The daughter of a friend of mine used to have tubes. After they came out she was still getting ear infections. The doctor wanted to put tubes back in. That's when she was introduced to Melaluca essential oil. Whenever her daughter now gets an ear infection she puts the oil around her ear a few times that day, and usually by the next day the infection is gone. You can look more into the essential oil here: Check it out and see if that is something that is good for your family.

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.
