Getting all the Help I can Get

Thank you to everyone who responded to my blog post about toe walking!  I love to gather as much information as I can.  Sarah Kate CAN walk flat on her feet.  She has had over a year of physical therapy.  After consulting with her pediatrician, we are taking her to a children's hospital for a second opinion.

Life has been very very busy since school started and I am finding myself wishing for a snow day! Ha!  We actually were able to have a relaxing Saturday.  We had BIG plans to go to my parents in South Arkansas.  I was to have a meeting in Little Rock.  All that did not come into play when SK woke up Friday morning with strep throat.  I was sad for her to be sick and I was disappointed that our plans fell through, but we needed a day to rest and not leave the house.

Sarah Kate loves to clean!  She vacuumed the house last night!  I told her I was going to take a picture of her and this is the pose she did!

She's so cute! I remember that age and when my daughter loved to clean. It just didn't last long enough. Now trying to get her to clean (she's almost 16) is like pulling teeth!

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.
