Favorite Item of Clothing

"What is your favorite article of clothing?" is the question today for the Summer Blog Challenge. Being that I spend the majority of time at home, I like clothes that are comfortable. I don't have any one item of clothing that stands out as a favorite...rather, I like one type of clothing the best: pajama pants.

Why?

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.

Rosemary Focaccia
I made Rosemary Focaccia for dinner one night.
The recipe is included in the post about the focaccia (see the link above).

The majority of my pajama pants I can pick up at a local thrift shop for $1.50-$2.00. I don't have to worry about damaging something that is more expensive than that.

Volcano

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. 

Olivia Painting with Watercolors on Canvas

I outlined Olivia's hand in oil pastels and then she colored in.

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