A Homeschool Mother's Journal - week 2

 The Homeschool Chick 

In my life this week...

Eric and I finally got to go out this past weekend on a much needed date (day). We had a Applebees gift card burning a hole in our pocket since the Fall. I asked my older son, Jeremy, and his girlfriend to come and watch the kids while we went out.  We had a nice 3 hours away from the house and had a great lunch. So full I could not even eat dinner that night!  

In our homeschool this week...

We were winding down our studies on Polar Bears and Washington State.  I was gearing up for a busy February.  So many significant days in February = plenty to blog about! 8)

Places we're going and people we're seeing...

We will try to get to the library this coming week, we did last week. However, they are predicting a few storms this week coming up in NY, so we will see.  Today we went to Chuck E Cheese as a treat!

My favorite thing this week was...

My date day with my hubby and some more crafting done!

What's working/not working for us...

So far, doing our "sit down" work while Sam naps is working out great! 

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...

Thoughts - can't wait until I can assign a days worth of work and they can work more independently! 

A photo to share...

Zachary received the order from Lego Education that his grandma bought for him.  He is into making mechanical things that work right now. He was sooo excited!

Yay for a date day!! My husband and I had one on Saturday too. It wasn't alone since we were getting things ready for a concert at church but it was still together kid free so it was very enjoyable! The lego package looks like so much fun!
Sounds like a good week. My and hubby need to get out soon as well! Thanks for stopping by and entering my contest!

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!�…
