Fantastic Gymnastics

My girls are taking gymnastics this year.  They both LOVE it!  This past weekend they had what was called a "Fun Meet."  It was for children who are not in competitive gymnastics.  The girls did a really great job!  They got to show all the spectators what they have learned.  They got medals that they are so proud of.  This was a fun time and a great way to build self-esteem.

Sunday night, Sarah Kate had her choir program at church.  She was super fussy and sad.  I thought she was just nervous about the performance.  She is a super friendly little girl, but she DOES NOT like to be in front of a crowd.  She did not sing and even sat down a time or two.  She was not herself at all.  We got home and I took her temperature.  She had 101.8 fever.  I felt so sorry for her.  THAT explained everything.  She had been fine during the day.  My girls seem to get sick so fast.  Fine one minute, sick the next.  She has strep throat.  We have stayed in this week so she can heal.

Little gymnasts are so cute!!! My oldest was on a pre-team for years and then she was taking lessons in Ukraine until the Soviet style of teaching (humiliation and yelling) nixed the fun. We moved on to ballet and now tennis. Hope your little one feels better!

Kenlee has strep throat, too, right now! We are missing "Charlotte's Web" at the Children's Theatre tomorrow & we are both bummed! I told her I would make it up to her.
Feel better, Sarah Kate!!

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 chu

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.
