A Mother's Homeschool Journey Week ?

The Homeschool Chick

I dont even know what week we are on as I have missed a few since my FIL passed away. We are busy though that is for sure!  Join me, Sue (The Homschool Chick) and other friends on our journey, won't you?!

In my life this week:   AWESOME Weather which made for a great school week for sure!  I am gearing up for the BBQ season as we love to host BBQ's with friends.  Memorial Day is around the corner and we just yesterday bought a new truck (new to us, used).  It's time to hand back in my leased Suburban so we had only a few weeks left to find something. Had a great "date day" with the hubby and found some "gems" at a little antique store!  I am down 21 pounds so far on WW and have about 35 more to go to hit my goal!  I am so happy with my discipline and how the Lord is leading me!   Also we are soooo happy to be one of the Top 25 Homeschooling Blogs on Circle of Moms.  Can't wait to share all that with you all!  Oh, in addition, I am now a writer for The Homeschool I do a lot huh!

Our homeschooling this week:  We were able to be outside so much with just the best weather!  This coming, week, not so much 8(     We are still in the middle of our BUGS unit and starting Honey Bees on Monday. We had a great time with Ladybugs last week.  We are schooling year around but will take a small break somewhere in between. 

Places we went and people we saw:  We were able to get back to the Bronx Zoo this week and had the most awesome time!   Hoping to get to some parks soon also! Last weekend for Mother's day we went tent camping to start the camping season!  Met up with friends and their kids!  Had such a great time! Can't wait to go again!

Favorite thing this week:   Seeing the kids at the Zoo was just great. They were SOOO well behaved and made it such a great adventure for us.  

Homeschooling Questions I have:  Just wondering when we will start the next year (moving up a grade). Have to wrap my head around the Summer still!

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!�…
