Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

We’re still having fun with the Fourth of July! Yesterday we found a fun choose your own adventure type story online. Then we learned more about the Revolution. I didn’t remember the war lasting so long. How sad that so many people had to die. I’m eternally grateful for those who sacrificed their lives, from the 1770’s until now, so we could enjoy this great country. I’m grateful for those who are willing to put not only their lives on the line, but also leave their families to protect our freedom. I hope we will support their sacrifices by continuing to fight, in our own way, upon the freedoms this country was founded.
We finished off the day by making these fun “windsocks”. They are made from cardboard tubes, construction paper and streamers. I found he idea on It’s a Daisy Day blog. http://itsadaisyday.blogspot.com/ Here’s how ours turned out.
Obeydens (aka Obedience)
Honoring our country

Red, white & blue
I was impressed that the kids really thought about words that represented the independence of our country!
