$50 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway (US & Can) from TeenSafe

TeenSafe $50  Amazon Giftcard giveaway

So my kids are back in school, but that means they’re still home with me, because we’re homeschooling!  I would love to be the lady in this picture who gets to enjoy herself, eat bon bons, and watch soaps all day while the kids are away – not that I really believe that’s a reality for many women, but it’s a nice dream, isn’t it? Even though I don’t think many moms get to relax like the woman pictured above, I am nonetheless excited to bring you a $50 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway – courtesy of TeenSafe!

If you remember from a post I wrote earlier in the summer, 1 in 3 teens is a victim of cyber bullying – a really scary statistic. My kids are too young for phones, and I’m  not sure how old they will have to be before I ever buy them a smart phone (if I ever do), but it’s good to know about ways to keep them safe now. The TeenSafe app  for the smart phone is one way to monitor on your kids’ activities on their phones. With this app, you can view deleted text messages, check the location of your kids, and see what they’re doing  on social media {as long as they use an iPhone or Android}.  Keeping tabs on your kids’ cell phone activities might be one way to help keep them safe from cyber bullying.

I know I’d love an extra $50! How about you? Every little bit helps, as far as I’m concerned. To enter, just fill out the GiveAwayTools Entry form below!

Tuesday Garden Party – Garden Inspiration for 8/19/14

Happy Tuesday, Friends! It’s the time of the week when we all come together to share what’s going on in our gardens! I, for one, can’t believe that it’s actually August right now. Our cool temperatures have been a reality for a while now – with lows in the 50s at night!

I heard on the radio that this weather might be coming to end – we’re looking at temperature indexes in the 100s by the end of the week. I’m fine with that, as long as we can get some much needed rain. All weekend I watched the dark clouds billow around my little homestead, but not once did they drop any measurable precipitation. We could really use the rain.

We’ve been eating broccoli, peppers, potatoes, herbs, zucchini, and beans from the garden. I’m picking a smallish bowl of tomatoes almost every single day, but they don’t last long at all – my 4 kids and I devour them before I can do much with them. I’m hoping the hot weather will help them all turn red so I can get busy canning. I have lots of new ideas for tomato canning this year and am anxious to get going.

That’s what’s going on here – now it’s time for the Tuesday Garden Party!
