Pool Safety Covers

Hi Neighbors!

Here is an idea to share with my neighbors. We recently purchased a pool. I am talking a smaller blow up type, yet large enough for the girls to play in. With summer here and children out of school, one of our concerns is having a cover on the pool for safety. Granted ours is only about 2 ft. deep, but still with children in the neighborhood, you can never be too sure. Our yard is fenced in, but there are three entry gates to the backyard, where someone could access the pool. So safety pool covers are a must!

The children love having the ability to go cool off during the heat we have been having. Although sometimes I wonder if the cleanup afterwards is worth the effort! The pool cover also keeps out dirt and debris. I told them we can not empty and re-fill the pool each week. Even though it is on the small side, it is still a lot of water. The first week we had the pool set up we had a storm pass through and between what ended up in the pool from the storm and the dirt they had tracked into the pool we had to empty, clean and re-fill the pool. A cover was next on my list!

Do you have a pool? Do you use a cover? Let me know in a comment!

Nope no pool here, but I wish more people did use a cover! I saw on TV a toddler had drowned in one of the blow up types- the kids had went over to a neighbors yard...
Pool covers are a good thing!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
