When I'm homeschooling and we're doing activities where I know I'm going to get my clothes dirty (e.g., cooking, baking, painting), I don't want to do that in clothes that I potentially could ruin.

I would much rather wear inexpensive clothes that could get stained or ripped, and it doesn't matter.
I made Rosemary Focaccia for dinner one night.
The recipe is included in the post about the focaccia (see the link above).

Sophia doing a volcano experiment.
Both she and Olivia had a lot of fun doing this activity.

Sophia and Olivia see me more relaxed when we're doing "messy" projects, conducting science experiments, and making food in the kitchen.
I outlined Olivia's hand in oil pastels and then she colored in.
She is painting with watercolors on the canvas.

That's how I want them to remember me...relaxed and not upset if my clothes get dirty or torn.
