Growing Girls!

Our girls are growing up so fast and I have decided raising them gets a little harder every year.  Little kids, little problems.  Big kids, big problems.
These girls are seeing that life is hard and they are learning to navigate through new waters.
I have to be their parent.  NOT their best friend.
I have to be in constant prayer for these precious girls that God has entrusted us with.
And people tell me it only gets harder!  UUUHHHHGGGGGGG........

1. The Ukrainians always said that about big vs little kids. That made me smile. 2. Yes....7/10/103 year old angst. I don't always handle it well.

I have two girls, now 20 and 21 and you heard right, it does get harder. Thankfully it is now easier again for me! You have the right attitude, you're their parent, not their friend. BUT be a friend enough so they feel comfortable talking to you about what's going on in their life, even if it's something you DO NOT want to hear!

Hi Laurie,
I started following your blog from Kelly's blog. I just want to say coming from a all girl family. You know 2 sisters, 5 granddaughters, and now 2 great granddaughters. I have a daughter, and when she was growing up I raised her the way God teaches us. I never had one problem out of her. She was a very well mannered child, and young girl. Just remember its what you make out of it. Girls will always have issues with boys...ha, ha... but its all in how you teach and show them your examples. You will be okay... Your doing great so keep your chin up, and smile.

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.
