From "On The Banks of Plum Creek"
"After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it."
- Laura Ingalls Wilder
Human Frailty of the Godly Soul
"The life of Luther might suffice to give a thousand instances, and he was by no means of the weaker sort. His great spirit was often in the seventh heaven of exultation, and as frequently on the borders of despair. His very deathbed was not free from tempests, and he sobbed himself into his last sleep like a greatly wearied child."
"As for her, like most women, she had but one ambition. To be a good wife and a good mother, and to be beloved by her husband and children, was all she asked. [She was] a busy, affectionate, cheerful little housewife, whose voice would never be heard in the streets, but whose memory would always live in a few faithful hearts."
Starting today, this will be a new series. I am going to share with you how to teach home economics to your daughters. I will write about this on Tuesdays. I am going to tell you exactly what I am doing with Amy (15). I will also share stories of what I did with my older two girls, now ages 20 and 22.

I will add more topics to this page as we go along. These will not be "how-to" posts, but personal stories in each category of what we are doing, here at home. I will also be writing several posts for each topic, over time. I want this to be a fun way to read about teaching these important skills to our girls.
