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!

Happy Memorial Day! Now that the unofficial start of summer is here, it’s time to start making those summer plans. Check out my latest post on Arizona Mama to see how I use one of my favorite tools, the Summer Bridge workbooks, to help keep the kids busy, having fun and using their brains!
Now I’m off to make Memorial Day special and share my gratitude to those who sacrificed so much for our countries freedom.
“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave” – Elmer Davis
Thanks to all the men and women who have sacrificed for our freedom and those who continue to do so!
Vague praise often feels insincere and patronizing. Children and adults are motivated when we feel truly appreciated and noticed. I try to keep that in mind when praising and encouraging my children. I love them because I love them, but I appreciate them for specific reasons; a compliment from a teacher for good participation, finishing a book, or being thoughtful. Try your own experiment for a week and let me know your results!
