Favorite Summer Weekend

 One of my very best college friends, Sara, is a missionary in the Middle East.  Sara and I were roomates in college her Senior year.  Sara is super smart and graduated from college in three years.  Sara met Ross soon after graduating.  They now have five children.  They are one of my most favorite families ever.  I always learn when I am with them.  Sara is probably the funniest friend I have.  She is such a passionate person and just a joy to be with. 
I go every Summer with one of my other college best friends to see Sara in the Memphis area.  They have a few weeks in the US every Summer.  It is a weekend full of non-stop fun and laughter.  Kim is also so so so funny and entertaining.  Kim is a therapist/counselor and she is so wise.  I love talking to Kim and she gives me free counseling.  Kim and I had such a great time driving to Memphis.  Kim always introduces me to great Christian music.

Steve held down the fort and took care of the girls and the cats.  They all missed me like never before!  They made me feel so loved.

It is always refreshing to be with good and true friends.

Just knowing you three get together every summer makes me so very happy! I can't even explain it, but I'm thrilled that you have this special weekend.

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.
