Catch up Sunday....new schoolroom pics inside!








Man there is so much to catch up on. Seems our week was sooo busy I hardly had quality time to blog anything good! 8)

Well this week we had a farewell playdate with friends (one friend and kids are moving about 2 hours away), we hosted a pizza party with friends and had some good outside fun! We a few weeks left until school starts for us (Sept. 7th) and we have a lot to do before that to end our Summer fun!

1st here is our school schedule that I finally finished up:

Zachary - 1st and 2nd grade work schedule:

Mondays - Math, Spelling, Reading, Writing, Social Studies and Phys Ed
Tuesdays - Reading, writing, science, art and phys ed
Wednesday - We have Fall HS Camp for 8 weeks (which has science, phys ed and other subject incorporated into it) plus reading, writing, health
Thursday - Reading, writing, science, music and phys ed
Friday - sign langl, math, spelling, reading, writing, s. studies and phys ed
Saturday - reading and writing and phys ed

We school 6 days a week (probably 7 honestly) so we can shorten our hours per day and still get in our 900 hours per year.

Also library 1 time a week (maybe more), field trips and playdates. We incorporate a lot of subjects into 1 activity. Reading, writing and spelling will be 1 actual worksheet or activity, so it seems like a lot but really it's not.

Here is a picture of those painting containers from Discount School Supply I was telling you all about. They are great!


I see that Staples has their penny sales this week on notebooks and more. We have a good amount of stuff to start off with but I can't resist those sales! I also was able to find some great stuff at our Dollar Tree yesterday. A whole packet of Story Starters which are great and a variety of Folder Games...which are similar to board games but they are all in a folder...similar to lapbooking. Can't beat it for a $ 1.

Hubby is out looking for a new (or additional) vehicle. His car is only 4 years old and has over 160,000 miles on it 8( He drives far to work every day.

I am going to post also pictures of the new school room design I just got done with...

Ok so this week the kids have dentist appts, it's hubby's birthday on Tuesday, Oh and Molly is featured (Tuesday) on the Potty Poloza for Parentsconnect.com....go see her on Tuesday on the site! Read her potty training success story....well I gotta run and catch up on other blogs...be back later!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
