Kid's Gardening Contest-Let's Have Some Fun!

Hey Neighbors,

Let;s encourage our children to turn off the TV, shut down the computer, and put away the video games and go outside and get dirty!  Most children spend way too much time with the electronics and need to be encouraged to get active and go outside.  Author V. A. Boeholt is encouraging you and your children to do just that this summer.  Take time to get outside and plant a garden, or if you don't have room for a garden perhaps you could do some plants in a planter.

V. A. Boeholt, author of Burton's Friendship Garden has a Facebook contest going on that you can enter.  The Grand Prize is:valued at over $100 that includes kids-gardening tools, seeds, games, the newest book by V.A. Boeholt: Burton’s Friendship Garden and a $25 gift certificate for the children’s books offered by Little Five Star (!

We just started turning over the soil to start our garden.  Now if it would just stop raining long enough for us to finish!  We are also working on some mini-gardens.

Leave a comment and let us know what you are working on planting!  Then click over and enter the Burton's Friendship Garden Spring Sweeps!  Just "Like" their page and then fill out the entry form HERE!

See you soon, At the Fence!

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.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.
