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!

It has been a crazy busy summer, but we still squeezed in a few of our fun summer camp themes. I shared the details of our China Summer Camp over at Arizona Mama. Our themes have been very international this year with France and now China, which is perfect for this Olympic season! This theme was sparked by a beautiful coffee table book, The Spirit of China. Don’t you love awesome neighbors who give your kids gifts that spark a quest for learning?

Today was a little busy with meetings and play dates. For today’s summer camp we only had time to read a story called The Goddess who Cast the Bell. It was long and kind of different. I wanted to read Lon Po Po, but I realized just before we were going to start today’s lesson, that I don’t have it. It sounds really good, a Chinese version on Little Red Riding Hood. Maybe another time!
It probably doesn’t say so on anyone else’s calender, but here it’s China week! During Summer Camp this week we’re learning about China this week as part of our Stay-at-home Summer School. Today we read The Seven Chinese Brothers, learned about Chinese inventions and colored the Chinese flag. Don’t they look great?
