Our Faithfulness and Olympic Learning

As July comes to a close today, I reflect on where the Summer has gone?  We have been busy, yes!  We have been blessed, yes!  But have we been faithful, sorry to say no 8(  

 We have not attended church one time since mid June when Sunday School ended.  We always seem to have something scheduled on Sundays in the Summer or we are too tired to get there after a busy Saturday.  Was Jesus too tired for me?  NO way...what is it about Summer that makes us more relaxed about church?  hmm...pondering that today.

We are having a great time, as a family, watching the Olympics. We catch it at night when we can and the kids are loving the Swimming events the most so far. 

Today in school we started tracking the top three Countries in medal wins - US, China and Japan, on a new chart I made up. 

We also had fun with Olympic Tic Tac Toe from Homeschool Journeys

Yesterday was a Fun day out and about celebrating Zachary's Birthday with a trip to Toys R Us to spend some gift cards, lunch out and then dinner out!  Think this birthday boy has had enough of three days of celebrating!  LOL

We are busy beavers over here with another great party this weekend - our 2nd Annual Family Camp Out - added a twist this year - little community service element...wait to see!

I invite you to my Sister Blog - My Party Passion to enter to win a HOST of fun party stuff from some great vendors!  The giveaway is open from today until August 7th!  EZ to enter!

Until tomorrow friends - Be Blessed!

We seem a little lax in the church department in the summer as well:( But, just because we don't attend church, doesn't mean we are not faithful. God is always watching!!

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!�…
