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!

Thanks to all of you who left great comments about encouraging children and entering the Hallmark giveaway. One of my favorite things about blogging is sharing ideas and encouraging each other, especially in the realm of mommyhood. I do my best day in and day out, but often it like I’m not getting anywhere or that I’m not effective in teaching my children. But here, we can share our successes and remind each other that we’re not alone.
Enough of the sappy stuff and on to the winner. Let’s have a big hand for Shooting Stars Mag! Please email me your address and I’ll have your cards and snazzy Text Bands heading your way.
I hope you are all settling into your school year routine. We’re had a good start and are just making our final adjustment to our routine – for a few weeks at least! Please share your tips for making the transition smooth as possible.
Thanks again to everyone who participated and thanks to Hallmark for providing the prize.
I remember being so excited and anxious on back to school eve, I often felt a little nauseous. It was kind of like Christmas, but with a lot more people and no gifts. I’m not sure my kiddos get anxious like I do, but I know they get excited. I don’t have a hard time getting them up on time for school. There’s a thrill that comes with the first day of school. If your children are excited, anxious or even dreading the new school year; it’s important for us as parents to listen, support and encourage them.
Hallmark was one of the sponsors at this year’s evo conference. Their suite was so much fun they had two walls of cards for us to send to our children, with messages ranging from ‘I love you’ to ‘great job’ to ‘let’s have fun together’. I liked finding the card that fit each child’s personality. Hallmark went out of their way to create a family friendly environment and helped us all to look forward to spending time with our families after our playtime was over!
I’m excited to share some of that fun with you! Hallmark has been kind enough to offer the following to one my lucky, US resident readers:
- 5 assorted Hallmark Kids Encouragement greeting cards
- A Hallmark Gold Crown coupon for $2 off of three greeting cards
- 2 Hallmark Text Bands
Entering is simple; leave a comment with your favorite way to let your children know how special they are to you. Contest ends Saturday, August 25 at midnight. The winner will be announced on Monday.
