Mother's Homeschool Journey week 8

The Homeschool Chick

In my life this week: Full of sick girls...ear infections....ER visit for Molly....rain rain rain....things have been hectic but I still managed to lose more weight on WW!  Down 12 pounds in less than 3 weeks!   My laptop died 2 weeks ago so I am working on the kids computer and it's old so things are a little tough...plus most all my pictures on on the old hard drive...but we ordered a new one, should be here today!


In our homeschool this week:  We have been continuing our Seuss studies and celebrated Mardi Gras also.


Places we're going and people we're seeing: The doctors and ER is really the only place we went this week....the weather has been less than fun to be out in.

My favorite thing this week: Seeing the ground without snow!  Picturing Spring coming soon!  I also received an EARLY Mother's Day gift from my mom...a Silhouette machine!  Can't wait to open that baby up and see what it's all about!


What's working/not working for us: things are going well in school.
Homeschool Questions/Thoughts I Have: I don't really have any questions this week

Photo to share.....Oh I wish I had one of these homemade goodies right now...lol

Sorry you've had yucky week. I've got a little one down with his second bout of the stomach flu right now. No fun!

Congrats on the weight loss. It's a wonderful feeling isn't it? I'm working on my own weight loss. Glad to know I'm not alone. :)
I like the format of your report. Sorry about the sickness, I hope you will all feel better soon!

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!�…
