Homeschool Link Up Party TODAY!

Happy Friday everyone!


I am excited to be hosting the 1st "Show off Your Homeschool" Linky Party today! 



{Details are posted below}

Grab a cup of coffee, tea or whatever your pleasure...

But first here are some pictures of where we homeschool to get this party started off right!


We start with a devotional before starting each day at the dining room table.



My "desk"..a rolling cart with all kinds of cubbies in the front and back...my "immediate" needs are here. (Snagged this baby on FREECYCLE!)


Bulletin boards and kids toys.

Other side of the schoolroom/playroom where I have a lot of "my stuff" and books stored.

Top of our coat closet with supplies. {I sneak stuff anywhere I can find a space..lol}



More by the bulletin boards.


Looking into our dining room/school table.



Master bedroom where Wii fun happens!


Our bouncey house - gotta keep those kids active!


Our outdoor movie screen, we host a lot of movies nights at our house...Fun for all!


Kids playard - all mulched in.  Can't see it but there is a big Step2 Playhouse off to the left next to that little table.


Other side of our yard  - great for our soccer games, baseball games, running and having fun!

So now you see where most of our learning happens...Time to Party!


"Show off your Homeschool"
 Link Up Party

 If you are a homeschooler and want to show off where you "school"...your rooms...your areas....your classrooms...even your car...come link up your picture!

I want to come live at your house!! I am going to try and link up later in the day - dog grooming, math, etc... this morning before I can have any computer time! Looks great!
Thanks for inviting me to stop over and join in the fun. I would love to, but I'm afraid my school room would bore you. :) I loved seeing yours though- I love the movie screen you have in your backyard. How cool is that?! I want one. LOL

Looking forward to checking out your next link-up! Blessings! :)

I will check out all of the fun spaces and love your back yard! It's like a private park and activity center!
Thanks for hosting!
Emily said…
You school space looks great! Very organized and fun! :) Thanks for stopping by today, too! Have a great weekend!
wow your play yard is awesome. better than a park. nice school set up. right now I don't have the space for things like this but I hope to have it in the near future.
Lisa said…
Thanks for inviting me to link up, and for always leaving such sweet comments on my blog.
I'm with everyone else, can we come live at your place? ;)
Love the brown dining room. We're thinking of painting our kitchen and dining room the same color.
Lisa said…
Melissa,
Thanks for the comment. :) I tie dyed the place mats. Several years ago I used to make and sell tie dye on Etsy and at little festivals. I don't have time to do it much anymore, but it's fun.
When the kids are a little older, I'm looking forward to teaching them how to tie dye. (Outside, of course...imagine the mess...)

Hi Melissa!
Thanks for hosting this link up! It's fun to see everyone's learning spaces! Your classrooms inside and outside your house are wonderful and I love the movie screen! I have thought of hosting movies outside for neighbors since we have a portable projector. I was thinking of hanging a white sheet off our porch to show the movie. Your "screen" looks fun! I have linked up at #13 and I linked up my post from the fall at the beginning of our school year! Our homeschool room isn't as neat anymore :)
Thanks for hosting. I found you and linked up. We have that same devotional book and LOVE it!
Tracy said…
Hi Melissa! Because I linked up a post I did back in August with my homeschool pictures, I thought I would share about your link up party and giveaway on a current post to help spread the word. Here is my post: http://asliceofsmithlife.blogspot.com/2011/01/show-off-your-homeschool-link-up-party.html

Also, you might be interested in linking up your Homeschool Link up party to the No Ordinary Blog Hop (NOBH) I am co-hosting since lots of bloggers that have linked up to NOBH are homeschool moms. Just an idea! Here is the link for NOBH if interested: http://noordinarybloghop.blogspot.com/

You have a great place to homeschool. Thank you for hosting the hop and inviting me to join it.
What an AWESOME set up you have there, Melissa! Can I enroll my kids at your house? haha :) I hope it's okay that I am linking up a previous post showing pics of our "schoolroom". I will try to get a new one together for next time though. Thanks for hosting! It's fun to see what other homeschool moms are doing.
Jennifer said…
Thanks for inviting me to link up here. Your home/school environment looks comfortable.
Kathy said…
LOOVE your setup!!
We start each day with (breakast) Bible reading and prayer at the dining room table and then i juggle toddlers, teen, middle schooler and gradeschooler all around the house the rest of the day. Wonder if having an actual homeschool room makes for better motivation?
Sarah said…
Looks like you're really good at making use of your space. Love the movie screen.
Aimee said…
You have a fabulous yard! I love that movie screen. We've been talking about getting a projector and screen so we can watch movies while we swim!
Michelle said…
wow, your outside is amazing. how i would love to have more of that type of thing.
Jessica S. said…
I love it!! My boys would go bonkers with that outside play area!! LOL. Thanks for hosting...and I am enjoying this blog hop! ;)
Pamela said…
That mickey mouse screen is awesome. I wish we had a backyard so we could have one. What great get togethers you must have!!!
Lindsay said…
What a great space!! Can I come watch a movie ;-) I love your outdoor space!

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!�…
