Mother's Homeschool Journal Week 10

The Homeschool Chick

In my life this week: I missed last week due to the death of my FIL, so I think we are on week 10?   It's been a hectic week trying to get back into the swing of things and supporting the hubby with his grief.   Trying to "put myself back onthe list" is something that is the back of my mind. Also getting the finishing touches on Molly's 4th Birthday party (in a week!) Weight Watchers, back on track!  Last week I did not do too well with all that was happening.

In our homeschool this week: We have been continuing our Seuss studies. Finishing up this unit today with our Dr Seuss Party!

Places we're going and people we're seeing: We went nowhere this week!  Primarily due to our less than Spring like weather!

My favorite thing this week:  we had friends over for a Welcome Spring BBQ last weekend.....and now we have snow

What's working/not working for us: things are going well in school.

Homeschool Questions/Thoughts I Have:  Zachary asked me if he can go to a collage where he lives at home still and goes each day to told him that he might change his tune later on!

Photo to share.....Molly at the Spring BBQ last weekend!

Blessings to your family. Especially after the loss of FIL. I am new to THMJ. Love to hear about all the activities mothers get involved with in homeschooling. We just read a Dr. Seuss book at our co-op too.

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!�…
