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!

One of the things I had hoped to do this summer, but didn’t was to teach my kiddos how to mend. I finally gave them their first lesson! They stitched up a few holes, mostly in stuffed animals, while I sewed on a couple of buttons. They had it down by the end of the lesson with the exception of the knots at the end of the tread.
After the sewing kits were put away, one of my kiddos discovered another small hole in the last stuffed animal he repaired. I thought he was going to fix it right then, but when I came back in the room he said he didn’t sew it yet because he was waiting for me. That seemed reasonable since he didn’t know how to do the knot at the end of the thread. Then he said ” I didn’t want to sew without supervision.” Too cute!
