A Homeschool Moms Journey, Week 7

The Homeschool Chick

In my life this week...Week 2 of Weight Watchers On Line - lost 9 pounds so far!  HOLLA!

In our homeschool this week... We had a great week this past week with starting our month long Dr. Seuss Lessons. We are incorporating so many things into his books...Science, Math, Geography, Social Studies and more!  Also started our units on Massachusetts (State of the Month), Cats (Animal of the Month and Bones.

Places we're going and people we're seeing...We stayed put mostly this past week, with the price of gas locally at $ 3.65, who can afford to go anywhere.. 8(   Church was really great today....loved the message of obedience - studying Adam and Eve in Genesis.

My favorite thing this week was..hubby got his yearly bonus this week and   my mother emailed me with a surprise, early Mother's Day gift (you have to know her to appreciate that, she is always coming up with some excuse to buy someone something..)  I am waiting on the arrival of a new Silhouette Machine!  HOLLA!

What's working/not working for the homeschool area – Molly seems to be getting frustrated more and more with writing. I really don't want her to practice just yet, but she is determined and I had to see her struggle. She is not even 4 yet but wants to bad to be like her older brother...

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...just love to see the way God is working in the family !

A photo to share...

Good for you with the online weight watchers!!! I really need to look into that, because nothing I am doing on my own seems to work.

I enjoyed reading your journal, Melissa. :-)

I just wanted to comment that I love your header - it's so bright and cheerful! I'm visiting for the first time from the Friday link-up.

Great job on the weight loss!!! Sammy is just now starting to want to learn to write. Have you tried doing things on a chalk board. What has been working for us is I will draw a letter. Sammy will wipe it off with his finger then try and draw it himself.

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!�…
