Mr. Brown and the school lesson today

Happy Monday everyone. Continuing with our Celebration of all things Seuss...we studied Mr. Brown Can Moo....Can You?  This book was so much fun and the kids laughed a lot when reading it.  Today I had Zachary read it to us, since Samantha was on my lap instead of napping...more on that later...



We have two copies of this...the larger version which he read from....


and the smaller version which everyone is used to. So Molly followed along.



Gotta notice the Lego's to his left, always have to have them for school...lol
Don't forget about the Lego Linky Party on Wednesday!



Molly worked on her Dr Seuss ABC cards today, tracing them. Got these at Michaels
with a coupon for $ 3.00



For Math we did this cool Mr. Brown can Moo dice game. I laminated this chart from
2 Teaching Mommies. It has 6 of the different pictures from the book with the numbers up the side...and you have this dice that you put together.

Which has the sounds that coordinate with the pictures... (don't notice the nail polish please..)


They took turns rolling it and charting what sound came up on the dice and marked it off. Once we got to 10 we had a winner!  The sound they rolled the most was the Clock - Tick Tock....


Then we worked on our Dr. Seuss Scholastic Lesson. I love these becuase they come with the student handout and the teacher poster size handout!   I can't say enough about this Scholastic program. We get 3 handouts per month with teacher lesson plans with them and they coordinate with holidays and history.  Cost is less than $ 20 per year!


After that Molly worked on her Dr Seuss Workbook I made up and she worked on
 the Mr. Brown pages.


Downer 8( - after lunch I took them all to the Dr.s on my hunch that Molly and Sam might have ear infections. Both have had runny noses for over a week and today both were very cranky!  Yupper, both have them. Started them on antibotics today 8(

Oh the wonderful sounds Mr. Brown can do, he can sound like a cow, he can go moo-moo! We love that book! You have some great activities to go along with it. Stopping in from the hop!

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!�…
