Carlos Caterpillar - DVD - Review

I "see" there are a lot of homeschoolers taking or did take a Spring break. We did not.  However, we finished up our Dr Seuss teachings for March last Friday with our party and this week (mon - thur) we are doing some "light" work and having some more fun!  Today we watched and discussed this great DVD I wanted to share with you all.

It's from Herald Entertainment - "The Adventures of Carlos the Caterpillar" series and this one is titled "No Prize Surprise".   ( Herald Entertainment is an award winning production house dedicated to content-rich, family friendly entertainment by means of quality animation, documentaries, music and illustrations.  They produce the material in a multitude of languages also!) 

This DVD series tells the growing up story of Carlos, an ever curious little caterpillar who often finds himself in one predicament or another. Helped by his Uncle Pedro, a butterfly with a lifetime of experience behind him, Carlos learns many lessons that will help him through his own little journey of life!

The DVD was 25 minutes long, just enough to keep the kids interested!  There are some Spanish words in the content which we had to listen carefully to see what was being said. Overall the kids loved it. Zachary said that the cartoon graphics were better than his video games (complement coming from a 6 year old boy). This story was how Carolos' friend got everything he wanted (money and toys) and Carolos' father could not afford to do that, but Uncle Pedro taught Carlos that money does not buy your family love and happiness and that is more important.  Zachary related to it with examples of how he wants a DS (handheld gaming unit) that "EVERYONE" has but lesson, great theme.  I would recommend to anyone with younger children.  Even my 4 yr old loved it. (soon to be 4)!    On their website there are so many other things for children. Activities, games, videos and downloads!  Check 'em out!

Thank you Herold Entertainment (Robin) for allowing us to review this DVD.

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!�…
