Welcome Back!

Welcome back....routines

Welcome back.....Fall time!

(Sidebar - would love for you to still vote for The Joys of Home Educating at the Circle of Moms Site - we are still in the running for the TOP 25 Mom Blogs of New York! - Thanks!)

Oh how I love this week - we are starting easing back into our regular school schedule.

Although we school year round, our Summers are more relaxed and not as structured.

We will not be back to our Full Time school schedule until we return from our Summer Vacation (beginning of October)!  (love being able to take vacation while others are NOT)

We had a great Summer and will continue some Summertime field trips this month.

Our school topics for September will include...

  • Apples
  • Path to the Presidency
  • Music (formal learning)
  • Jim Henson (learning about Muppets and puppets)
  • Celebrations of Ice Cream, Honey and more....

Looking forward to see what this school year will bring!  

We now have a preschooler, 1st Grader and 3rd Grader in the house! 

Praying for all our friends who are returning to public school this year!  (and who have returned already!)  

Be safe and have fun!

Be Blessed!

I always love getting back
In to the fall "routine". We aren't going on vacation but we love to do days trips after the school year starts and clears the crowds!

Hope you have a wonderful school year! Our boys just started at their schools this week, and I must admit, the first few days I loved the chance to just breathe a bit; however, it already seems a bit too quiet!
Love and God Bless,

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!�…
