Fire Ants and other creepy bugs!

In our mid-week lesson today we learned about Fire Ants. We learned we don't ever want to see one!  lol   We also had a great morning outside and looked for ant "hills" or signs of ant houses under ground. We found some...and then some more!



You can clearly see the dirt that the ants "dug" out. Under were all these holes in the
ground. 



We found this awesome specimen of a Millipede!  
My camera lens cap is 3 inches round...This is a big guy!





Picture of a fire ant. Their sting is pretty hurtful.



As we were having our lesson, an ant decided to join in for school today. You
can see him on the edge of my papers here...lol..kids were cracking up!






Continued with our Sun Scholar Program in talking about animals today. 
The topic today was Vets and their role.

Her Pizza!


You can see, Sammie did not nap 8(  So she is having school with us today...


Molly's allergies are kicking in now that we are inside...eyes are real bad today 8(

The day is beautiful here in NY.
 We are keeping all those families affected by the tornadoes and floods
in our prayers!

We have fire ants all over here. And sadly we found out a couple months ago that our daughter is allergic. We are hoping it's not as bad as we think (the reaction came from 1 ant bite). She had her annual checkup yesterday and we got a Rx for an epipen (just incase).

Hope Molly's allergies go away soon!

Looks like you had a fun day! We are all too familiar with the fire ants. Their bites are so painful and my poor son seems to attract them. :(

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!�…
