The Homeschool Mother's Journal - Week 4

The Homeschool Mother's Journal 

In my life this week...

Finally got my hair roots touched up (by me, but still done) and the eye brows are waxed!  Two things I hate to do, but MUST to maintain!

In our homeschool this week... Our Homeschool Week in Review

Monday – Molly had her 1st Ballet/Gymnastics class today!  She was so excited. The class was 30 mins of gymnastics and then 30 mins of ballet dance.  Great mom that I am, forgot to charge the battery in my camera so I could not take pictures 8(    I will get them next Monday!  We did a cute doggy craft for V’day today.  Read a few great books and had some Lego fun (as usual). Overcast day today.

Tuesday – Great school day!  We went to the local gym to play for “free play” time. Great deal only $ 5 for all of us for 1 hour. They supply all the balls etc…. School went real well. Zachary had his 1st Get Fit class at the gym at night. He loved it! That runs for 10 weeks right up until T-ball starts.

Wednesday – went back to the gym for playtime again and another successful day at school!  Finally got a chance to touch up my hair too (roots were bad)

Thursday – again with the gym….{see a pattern here}…lol…great day of school again…crafted a cute frog with all hearts!  Went to our local Salvation Army, they are moving their location and everything was 50 percent off….snagged a few things for St Patrick’s Day décor…

Friday – Finished up the chapter book that Zachary was reading…in the Magic Tree House Series.   More Valentine crafts and worksheets. Nice sunny day….cleaning day for me….looking forward to a nice weather weekend….

Places we're going and people we're seeing...the only places we went this week were the post office and the gym! Also a quick trip to the salvation army for their 50 percent off sale!

My favorite thing this week was...listening to my 21 month old talk in 4 word sentences and make sense!  I love this age!  Looking forward to a Family outing to the Bronx Zoo on Sunday!

What's working/not working for us...being a little less structured this week….it’s working and we are still getting it all done! Crafts and crafts this week in prep for V’day!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...just thanking God above for the path he has put us on!

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!�…
