A few resources we use.

Wanted to share a few resources we use for Homeschooling.....


Jesus Calling by Sarah Young! 
This book is our morning devotional book. I can't say enough about it.  If you have not had the opportunity to check out Tommy Nelson's site...I would recommend it to anyone! I was blessed to have received this in my swag bag at Relevant10 last Fall. 

It's simple for the kids to understand and you could win one....shh...let you in a little secret....I have a birthday coming up and this will be a giveaway on "My Favorite Things Birthday Extravaganza"....look for it soon!


Sign language chart - it's actually a laminated placemat but we use it for our alphabet.


We study a new state each month, so this book will get us thru for a few years...lol


LOVE LOVE LOVE the subscription to The Mailbox that I have (thanks to my momma)...I get on line perks too!  A lot of our crafts you might have seen last week came from these magazines!  They have reproducibles, very good quality also!


Made by the people of The Mailbox...this book has 2 daily journal questions/prompts We don't write our answers but we talk about them each morning after our devotional. Get's the kids thinking and their stories are so funny!

Here are a few internet sites i have used in the past.....might be something new to you....



http://www.kidssoup.com (this costs $ 2.12 per month to be a member, they bill you 1 time for the year, well worth it)
http://crafts.kaboose.com/ (great for craft ideas)
http://www.first-school.ws/THEME/cp_bible.htm (great for bible coloring pages)


Other resources we use:

  • Dollar Tree for workbooks, reward stickers
  • Staples office supply for pencils, crayons, glue, pens and paper (when they have a great deal)
  • Oriental Trading for posters
  • Garage sales and craigslist

The devotional book is super cute, Ill have to check into that, we have been keeping our eyes out for something for the littles. And of course, as an interpreter, I love the abc sign language map/poster.

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!�…
