Wrapping my head around it all....

Here we are beginning of August....schooling away (we school all year) and I have not wrapped my head around the "new school year yet"....which for us, starts middle of October.  

We are starting the Road to the Presidency in September along with some Fall units, but back to school Full Time wont happen until we return from our vacation (one of the HUGE benefits of homeschooling - Disney mid October  - not busy!) 


This past weekend we had our Annual - Camp Newell - Family Camp Out - it was a blast and the good Lord answered my numerous prayers about the weather - skies opened up to thunderstorms a few hours after the last camper had left the property!  

Thank You God!  









We are still watching and tracking medals in the Olympics and the children are truly enjoying this!

This week is extremely busy with playdates and the 1st concert for Molly and Zachary - going to see Big Time Rush (with another mom friend, her daughter and myself). It's at an outdoor venue where they sit on blankets - perfect for kids!  Looking forward to that....plus other things happening here and there....

I have not even wrapped my head around next year's curriculum yet either!  Yikes - I am sure I will figure it all out - praying about it!

Enjoy your Monday and Be Blessed!

It looks like your annual camp out was a HUGE success. I enjoyed seeing your updates, along the way, via FB. Glad the weather cooperated. I am sure you made lots of great memories.

We started school today...although I think we should have started AFTER the olympics! :) I love your Disney comment though. We have a Disney cruise booked for October! We always do Disney in the off season. :)

I totally know how you feel! This was me a month or two ago! Just keep praying about it and I know you will be able to wrap your head around it all!

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!�…
