Collage Friday

Yes my friends - June is in full swing...rain has made everything so green and lush here in NY!  We are preparing (as you read this) to leave for a week long camping trip in our new Travel Trailer!  What I am looking forward to the most.... NO COMPUTER for the kids to sit in front of!  More time with ME outdoors!  Hubby will be there for the Father's Day weekend and then back home for the work week..coming back to get us on Friday.  SO I am doing this solo!  Pray for me please!  Pray for great weather!  My mom (aka Bubby) will be coming up to visit for a few days also!  

We are off to Jellystone (only about an hour from our home...)  great for the children and we are so familiar with this campground kinda feels like a 2nd home!  We are new to their RV sites though! 

This picture was taken LAST FATHER'S Day Weekend - we camp with our BFF's (they were nursing a sick child for Mother's Day weekend so they had to cancel if you remember)  So see our 2012 Celebration with a CHEERS Theme - you can click HERE)  

Sunday was the ending to the Sunday school year for the children. It was a Youth Sunday service where the children did a lot of participation.  Zachary received his very own bible (which he was sooo happy about). He has been reading every day since!  All the children sang and the girls helped with collection.  It was a very inspiring service!

We were able to sneak in a few Science Experiments this week - the one shown above - making our own Lava Lamps!

Below picture:  Studying about Flag Day (June 14th). The children looked into other state flags as well and made their Own Unique Flag.   

We crossed out items on our Spring Bucket List and printed our new Summer One.  You can find ideas and free printables for Summer Bucket Lists at this POST from earlier this week.

If you follow me on for camping adventure pictures! Wish me luck!

AWESOME post...wonderful classic shots...Wow. I loved this.
Enjoy the time together....we're campers too.

God bless;)
Have a great time camping! I'd love to take the boys, but I'm afraid of bugs... lol.

Oh, you can do it! I've ALWAYS camped alone with my kids, even when they were just 6, 3 and an infant! (My youngest went on his first TENT trip at 12 weeks old.) I'll admit it's MUCH easier now that they're 14, 11 and 8! :wink: LOVE camping, even if we're not able to do any this season. (We're saving all our pennies for our trip to Alaska in August instead.)
Love the bucket lists! Your life is so much fun!!! Have a WONDERFUL weekend!

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!�…
