That Ole Strep Throat

 My baby bear got sick Sunday night.  She was happy as a lark all day Sunday, but when we picked her up from church Sunday night, she cried all the way home saying she was cold and sleepy.  I KNEW she had fever.  Emily went to school on Monday happy and healthy, but then I got the Monday Mystery Illness phone call asking me to come get her because she had a headache and fever.  SOOOOO she saw the Dr too and he told her she was "just fine."  She suddenly got "all better" and cried because I would not ler her play outside.  SK tested positive for strep throat.  This is the 4th or 5th time this school year.  I am thinking we need to see her ENT about her tonsils.  Last night I got her a new toothbrush with Tinkerbell.  She is so's the little things!  I put Emily to work doing chores and homework, math and reading.  When SK's meds kicked in she was a new little girl and she helped Emily clean.  I took a picture of the closet floor because I have not seen it in so long.

Strep is the worst. I used to get it all the time before having my tonsils out. Happy to hear your girls are feeling better!

Go ahead and see about getting those tonsils out. I worked for an ENT doctor for several years. The younger they are, the better they seem to recover.

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.
