February - week 1 - wrap up


Happy February! 

February means...groundhogs, Chinese New Year, presidents, valentines, my birthday and more....

Here a look in pictures at our first week this February...


  • Samantha at her belt graduation. She test for blue belt and was successful.
  • Molly and her vest she made from her own pattern and all on her own.
  • We are doing a lot of reading (thanks library) and I am a squirrel whisperer. (in case you are not on Instagram and see all my squirrel pics)


Art studies this week:

Masterpiece Monday:
we studied the life and works of Georgia O'Keeffe.  Come to find out, my husband went to one of her exhibits as a young adult. How lucky!

  • In love with my new LOVE mug and enjoying some tea throughout the day.
  • Again with my squirrels: they come right up to the window by the computer and beg for food. Of course, I oblige
  • My newest obsession: Banana pancakes: just 1 egg and 1 mashed up banana!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Lots of LEGOs happening, as always. We are all into the LEGO Stop Motion and making a Valentine themed movie to come out soon!

One of my goals this year is to find ways to make some of our favorite foods from scratch.  This week was pizza dough. There are so many things you can make with this simple dough.  We made pizza for lunch on day and used the other 1/2 of the dough for a dessert pizza - cinnamon/brown sugar pizza.  LOVING new Reynolds baking sheets!  (I received them in exchange for my opinion on Crowdtap)

Lots of groundhog work this week and our bible studies: still in the book of Joseph.

What you did not see:

  • Sewing class (2 times a week)
  • Martial Arts (3 times a week)
  • Last trampoline class tonight


It's snowing pretty good out right now and it's about time!  We have had such an unseasonably warm winter.

Last night hubby took the kids skiing to our local mountain, where they all have season passes, and someone took my husbands skis in a matter of 10 minutes while he was helping the kids gear up. Sad state of affairs.  So now, unless he buys another pair of skis or rents each time, the passes are useless to us 8(

What's up for the weekend:

Baking and cooking tomorrow.
Church and hosting a Family Superbowl party on Sunday!

GO BRONCOS!




I hope you have a wonderful weekend and you can find me and other homeschoolers linking up at:

How awful about your husband's skis! The rest of your week sounded good but that is sure a quick way to put a damper on it all. Here's hoping that some sort of a solution crops up for you all so that the season passes are not a waste.

Sorry about the set back with the skis. Hope you all keep positive and come up with a creative way to use your passes. Glad the rest of your week worked out well. I'm visiting from Weekly Wrap Up.

Most of your week sounded great. I am sorry about your husband's skis. That is so unfortunate. You post such cool pictures. What program are you using for stop motion?
Blessings, Dawn
Congratulations to Samantha on her belt graduation! My daughter just received her green belt a few weeks ago and loves her classes! Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh no, I'm so sorry about your husband's skis.

Your daughter's vest turned out quite nice.
What a lovely week. I love all the food. I think I may be hungry :)

Awesome! Your girl did great on her vest! Sewing isn't an easy thing...at least I've never been able to figure it out. (I can sew a small hole closed though! LOL) Those pancakes would be good with chocolate chips! LOL Legos are such a great "toy", but not so great to step on...We have so many of them around here. I should use them more in our schooling!

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!�…
