Wrapping up with Ladybugs

Glad to have blogger back up to post at least...I know they will be restoring our posts from Thur and Fri also so hang tight!  I have a giveaway that ends today, but I will be extending it since the site was down so long..

Anyway on to school.......We finished up ladybugs today and will be studying Honeybees next week!

One of Zachary's assignments this week was to make a bug using his Lego and Bionicle Pieces. 
Nice one huh!

Molly doing some of her number recognition

Coloring beetles

Let Zachary learn how to use his Multiplication Slide Table today 
with his Math worksheet.

Found a great "on line" puzzle site for kids....all ages! 

We talked about how bugs were MUCH bigger millions of years ago. Theory is that the carbon in the rocks changed and so did the size of insects over time. Thank God I have never seen a dragonfly as big as cat before - that's how big they were long ago! 

We have been using this great book this week to understand how our eyes see something and our 
mind tries to figure it out.  This book is awesome!

Zachary trying the on line jig saw puzzles too 
You can change the cut count up to 50 pieces I believe. 
Molly uses the 10 pieces and Zachary used the 20 pieces.
It also has a timer on it!

PS We will be touching back again on Ladybugs as we are waiting
for our live larva to arrive to hatch our own!

PSS - want to thank Blogger for being down so long, forced me to step away
from the computer and clean my house! lol

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!�…
