Goodbye Summer!

 We had a great Summer, but it was a little too busy for my taste!  Hard to believe I have a 4th grader and a 6th grader!  Time does fly!
 Here is Emily and Sarah Kate before going to meet the teacher/open house!  They were excited and I was a nervous wreck!  I just want my girls to have great teachers and good kids in their class...DON'T WE ALL WANT THAT?  
 Then we left for Branson with our dear friends!  I love these girls so much!  Good friends right here!
 First day of school!  Lots of praying going on this day!

Emily got braces in May!  In just five days, her two front teeth went together!  WOW!

Complicated

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 good thing, …

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 pot…

Just a Hodge Podge of Stuff

SK LOVES her long locks!  I recently talked her into getting her hair trimmed a little bit!
 My favorite spot of my house is our breakfast room.
 I'm trying to keep these succulants alive!  They lose a leaf each day!  I haven't figured them out yet!
 We visited Steve's parents during Spring Break and ate at a wonderful little joint called The Second Line in Memphis!  I got fried oysters and cheese grits!
