Farmers Market & inside!

So part of our schooling today on Day 2 was a trip to our local Farmers Market. Such great finds today!

First let me say we are doing a Unit on Dogs with our lapbook. We stopped at the library and the kids signed out 10 books having to do with Dogs (they also got a movie Underdog!)

Then we headed over to the market. We stopped at the baked goods table where the kids were awarded a free sample..YUMMO so they say!

Oh and also on the way into the market we came across a man who was walking his dog. Happened to my favorite breed...the Great Dane. Her name is Sadie and she is a beautiful Fawn color. The kids asked questions and petted the dog. It was great!

Then over to the veggie table...oh what a treat we got there. We are having a Labor Day bbq and I bought most of my fresh veggies there1

Then a trip to the Alpaca Table where we learned about how they arrived at this beautiful yarn from the Alpacas. The woman was friendly and very informative. Actually they are even having a Farm day in September that we can go learn more about them.

Then over to the pickle and pickled veggie table.Just had to buy some fresh pickles and mushrooms! We also visitied the fresh milk and cheese table. I bought some goat cheese with rosemary in it...OHHHH Baby! The kids sampled the chocolate milk and we ended up buying some of that...very creamy!

The only table we did not purchase as was the fruit...too expensive in my opinion and the jelly table. Zachary tried a variety of jellies but nothing he loved, so we passed on the jelly and jam.

Overall great more school!

My kids LOVE going to the local produce stand, but we have never been to the farmer's market. I think it would be fun and I'd be able to get some good deals on produce too!
Thanks for you visit & comment on my blog today! Nice to meet you!

How much fun. I too found the produce at the farmers market that we visited to be pretty expensive... That being said, once our weather cools down I'd like to try another!

This looks like fun and so yummy with all the produce! I'm following you back from Hip Homeschool Hop! Your children are beautiful, as well as your blog and photos! I read your profile and praise God for you being a cancer survivor! You are blessed and it's always refreshing to meet bloggers, like yourself, who don't take blessings from above for granted! Happy Homeschooling!

Looks like a lot of fun! We used to have a famers market here but haven't seen it in awhile.

If you want a REALLY cute movie for your dog section get "The Ugly Duchound (sp?)" It's an old disney movie about a couple who's weiner-dog has puppies, the husband has always wanted a great dane and at the vet learns of a litter where one isn't getting enough milk from the mom, so the vet gives it to him and he hides it in with his wife's dogs puppies....... it's a really cute show! And old Disney wholesome :)

Have fun!

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's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
