The Talent Shpw

 This LITTLE girl got on this BIG ole stage and sang her heart out!!!!!!

 When Emily was in kindergarten, she wanted to try out for the school talent show.  She talked about it all the time and practiced her song over and over.  A couple of days before the try-out, she backed out.  I let her back-out because I did not want to force her to do something she did not want to do.  She just got scared.
 As a first grader, she said at the first of the year,  "I want to be in the talent show."  Right after Christmas I got the girls a a Sunday School songs c.d.  When she heard the song, Standing in the Need of Prayer" she wanted to sing it for the talent show.
 She tried out several weeks ago.  I had several people praying for her on the day.  A few days later, she hopped in the car with a HUGE smile on her face and a paper in her hand,  As she was opening the car door she said, "I MADE THE TALENT SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"  She was soooooo THRILLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 There were only 3 first graders in the talent show.  I am just so proud of her.  She did so good!!!!  You could understand every word loud and clear.  Her best friend, Sarah Grace was there to support her!
 These are her teacher's daughters, Raegan and Michaela.  Emily is crazy about them and they are so good to her!
 Proud Daddy and his girls
 Emily's wonderful teacher!
 Meme and Granddaddy came.

Kay-K and Pop were here too!

It makes me so happy that Emily wanted to do a Jesus song.  She said she wanted to do a Jesus song from the get go.  She was salt and light to her school.  Way to go sweet Emily!


I'm so proud of her!!!
I hate I missed her but I'm glad I got to see! Such a precious girl!

How wonderful! I know you are so proud and I would be too! My kids love church songs too- we have been burning up the Kingdom Rock VBS CD lately!

Shoot I posted a comment, but think it went on the wrong blog post! I am so proud of Emily and so happy she rocked the stage. I have enjoyed reading yours and Kelly's blog so much and getting to know your family through reading...I am thinking your part of Arkansas must be a lil bit of heaven on earth. Keep me and my family in your prayers.

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.
