A Mother's Homeschool Journey 5/20

The Homeschool Chick

My Life this Week:  Rain!  If we were ducks over here, we would be smiling all the time!  We had little relief from the rain this week, although thankful we are not in Louisiana, nothing like that here in NY.  Praying for all those people in the south without homes and so much water.   Still on the Weight Watchers band wagon and slowly losing!  We pick up my new (new to us) truck tomorrow and hand in the Suburban we have had for 4 years, the kids will be sad (they hate change)!  We had a bear get into our garbage this week and what a mess he/she left!  Also found two lovely mice skeletons in the wall yesterday, kinda cool!   I had my 2nd article published on The Homeschool Village this week! If you are considering camping with your kids, it's a MUST READ! Writing for them has been fun!

Our homeschooling this week:  BUGS!  Honeybees to be precise!  Next week ants!   We had some great blog posts this week with lots of FREEBIES...We are also on Facebook now and I am always putting free stuff on there for Homeschooling (once we hit 100 likes, we will have a great giveaway)!  We are in the middle of our Sun Scholar Summer Program and LOVING IT!  I so encourage you to stop over there and check it out. 12 weeks for $ 50 it's a bargain!


Places we went and people we saw:   We met up with friends and went to Chuck E Cheese this week and in the beginning of the week hosted a great Ice Cream Party Playdate (so happy that Catch my Party had our party in their rotation!)!


Favorite thing this week:   Watching my 2 yr old (just turned 2) count to 14 without hesitation!  She is awesome!


Homeschooling Questions I have:  Wondering what I will be teaching over the Summer months! Still planning.


Picture to share:



The kids Garden Challenge is going well!

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!�…
