Creation Claymation

This year for school I opted NOT to use our Jesus Calling Devotion for Children (we had used it for 2 years and it was getting "stale" for the kids)...instead I found this great site called Calvary Curriculum and we are starting with Genesis and going thru the Bible this year! 

This week we will discuss Creation - have art based around it, crafts, music, guessing games, reading, coloring, word searches and more! 

Today - we talked about the first 7 days of creation and then had some worksheet. Our art project was to create the 7 days of creations that God created using Clay.  They did great!

In addition to our Bible Studies - it was Math, Reading, Spelling and we are trying hard to get out each morning and walk or ride bikes BEFORE we start our lessons.  

Day 1 - success!

We also finally made it back to the Farmer's Market for our fresh chocolate milk and veggies!  Looking forward to Friday when we have our traditional back to school Chuck E Cheese fun! 

Until tomorrow - BE BLESSED!

you're such a great mom! This looks like a lot of fun . We are working through the great stories of the Old Testament in our Sunday School class this year - I need to check out the link you mentioned.

Thank you so much for sharing this website. I will for sure look into it this week. I love JC by Sarah Young, but having Biblical Facts stored in our kiddos minds is so very important. Keep it up Mel, your kids will thank you later for ALL you do for them.

Love the way your clay project turned out!
Ohhh fresh chocolate milk and fresh veggies! I have to put going to our local farmers market back on my to do list. Your playdough creations are SO cute! As I have told you many many times before over the past few years I want to go to your school! Your children are always having such a great time being creative. Love it! Thank you for linking up to my Enchanted Thursdays Blog Hop!

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!�…
