Gardening Giveaway donnahup

I am loving living in the midwest and learning how to garden.  It’s so rewarding picking my own veggies. I’m really excited to be part of this giveaway.  Read on to find out more!

I am fortunate to enjoy a career as an occupational therapist for a large school district in Virginia. Not only do I love my job, but I also love the balance it affords me in my home life. Right now, I am enjoying spending quality time with my two kids (ages 5 and 2) over summer break. Now that the whirlwind of end of the year tasks and long awaited get-aways have come to an end, I’m faced with finding activities to fill these long summer days.
Over the school year, I was involved in planning and implementing outdoor learning activities for students with special needs. While cleaning out my office in late June, I came across my stackable garden pots. We had used these pots in the fall to plant an herb garden in the classroom. I immediately packed them up and brought them home with my own children in mind.
On one particularly hot and humid afternoon, my son and I set out to create our own herb garden for our home. I always find myself buying fresh cilantro and basil at the grocery store, so I decided this is what we would plant for our home garden. We went to our local home and garden store to select some herbs that were already growing and ready for transplanting. I also picked up some potting soil. At home I had all the other tools that were needed, which really was not much, just some scoops for the dirt and a garden hose.

Once we got home my son went to work. He cleaned out the pots using a hose. He used a trowel to scoop soil from the bag and into the pots. And then he dug small holes in the soil in preparation for the plants. His absolute favorite part was removing the plants from their package and placing them into the soil. He also loved the responsibility of handling the plants with care and putting them into a container that was all his own.

He also got to use scissors, which is awesome for most 5 year olds. My inner OT loves it whenever I can work school-related fine motor skill tasks into everyday activities.

Once finished we gave our plants a good drink, and brought our containers onto the front deck where we stacked them and admired our hard work.

Gardening Giveaway donnahup

So where to from here? I’m thinking watering the garden can become part of my son’s daily responsibilities. And, I’ve already got meals and snacks in mind that would be easy and engaging for my little ones to prepare.
I’m looking forward to the opportunity to share these simple garden activities with my kids this summer. Gardening is a great way to engage children in hands on experiences while learning about the world around them. Managing gardens teaches children about caring and responsibility. Harvesting and eating or using the foods we grow, helps children develop an awareness of healthy eating and appreciation for their hard work.
If you are interested in garden tasks with your little ones, or learning how to use gardens therapeutically with children with special needs; my colleagues and I collaborated to create a book entitled “Growing Plants, Functional Skills, and Communication Skills in School Gardens.” For more information about the book follow the link: www.growingschoolgardens.com. This book can also be purchased on Amazon.

    BURBANK, Calif. (July 14, 2014) – Walt Disney Animation Studios officially announced the voice cast behind the new action-packed comedy-adventure “Big Hero 6,” including Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, Damon Wayans Jr., T.J. Miller, Alan Tudyk, Jamie Chung, Genesis Rodriguez and Daniel Henney, with Ryan Potter as Hiro Hamada and Scott Adsit as Baymax. Directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”), “Big Hero 6” hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.

“We’re so impressed with what these performers have been able to bring to their characters,” said Hall. “The story really calls for each performer to give a wide range of emotions—from light-hearted to some seriously heavy moments—and this cast has been incredible.”

The voice cast and official character descriptions follow.

·       Voiced by RYAN POTTER (“Supah Ninjas,” “Senior Project”), robotics prodigy HIRO HAMADA has the mind of a genius—and the heart of a 14-year-old: his state-of-the-art battle-bots dominate the underground bot fights held in the dark corners of San Fransokyo. Fortunately, big brother Tadashi redirects Hiro’s brilliance, inspiring him to put his brain to the test in a quest to gain admission to the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology. When a tragic event changes everything, Hiro turns to a robot named Baymax, and they form an unbreakable bond—and two-sixths of a band of high-tech heroes on a very important mission.

·       SCOTT ADSIT (“30 Rock,” “St. Vincent”) provides the voice of the world’s most compassionate robot. BAYMAX cares. That’s what he was designed to do. The plus-sized inflatable robot’s job title is technically Healthcare Companion: With a simple scan, Baymax can detect vital stats, and given a patient’s level of pain, can treat nearly any ailment. Conceived and built by Tadashi Hamada, Baymax just might revolutionize the healthcare industry. But to the inventor’s kid brother Hiro, the nurturing, guileless bot turns out to be more than what he was built for—he’s a hero, and quite possibly Hiro’s closest friend. And after some deft reprogramming that includes a rocket fist, super strength and rocket thrusters that allow him to fly, Baymax becomes one of the “Big Hero 6.”

·       Voiced by T.J. MILLER (HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2”), fanboy FRED comes off like a laid-back dude with no direction. But this sign-twirling, monster-loving, comic-book aficionado is sure to go places—when he’s good and ready. For example, Fred doesn’t hesitate to join “Big Hero 6,” and he has a lot of ideas for his super-hero skillset, too. His ferocious, fire-breathing alter ego comes complete with claws, integrated communications and a super bounce.  But his sign-spinning may still come in handy.

·       JAMIE CHUNG (“Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” “Once Upon A Time,” “The Hangover Part II & Part III”) steps up as the voice of the aptly named GO GO TOMAGO, who knows what it takes to be fast. She’s tough, athletic and loyal to the bone, but not much of a conversationalist. Popping bubble gum and delivering well-placed sarcasm are totally her speed. The daredevil adrenaline junkie is at her best on wheels, and when Go Go joins forces with “Big Hero 6,” she rolls like never before, using maglev discs as wheels, shields and throwing weapons.

·       DAMON WAYANS JR. (“Let’s Be Cops,” “Happy Endings”) provides the voice of WASABI, who’s committed to precision. He’s super smart and just a touch neurotic, but the big and burly neatnik can’t help but join the cause when Hiro needs him most. As part of “Big Hero 6,” Wasabi amplifies his martial arts skills with jaw-dropping plasma blade weaponry. Sharp doesn’t even begin to describe this guy.

·       GENESIS RODRIGUEZ (“Tusk” and “Run All Night”) was called on to help bring Honey Lemon to life. It’s elemental when it comes to chemistry whiz HONEY LEMON. Don’t let her glasses and funky fashion fool you: Honey may be as sweet as her namesake, but she has a fire in her belly and a can-do attitude that make her pretty much unstoppable. Her knowledge of alchemy proves powerful, too, when the effusive brainiac becomes part of the “Big Hero 6” and creates clever concoctions that when thrown, can get her team out of nearly any jam.

·       DANIEL HENNEY (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) was called on to give voice to TADASHI HAMADA. Tadashi is a good guy. He just is. He actually developed, built and programmed a state-of-the-art nursebot—a Healthcare Companion named Baymax that will likely help millions worldwide. But it’s his role as big brother that makes Tadashi truly special.  Every kid needs a guy like Tadashi looking out for him, and Hiro knows just how lucky he is to have him in his life.

·       MAYA RUDOLPH (TV’s “Saturday Night Live,” “Maya Rudolph Variety Show,” Bridesmaids”) provides the voice of AUNT CASS, who’s the overworked but always-supportive guardian of brothers Hiro and Tadashi.  The owner of a popular San Fransokyo bakery and coffee shop, Aunt Cass is proud, ebullient and thinks the world of her two genius nephews.  She’s always good for a laugh and ready with a hug, tirelessly there for support and a great home-cooked meal.

·       Voiced by JAMES CROMWELL (“Murder in the First,” “L.A. Confidential”), PROFESSOR ROBERT CALLAGHAN heads up the robotics program at the prestigious San Fransokyo Institute of Technology and is Tadashi’s professor and mentor. When Hiro visits the university for the first time, he is star-struck by the world-renowned roboticist—while Callaghan immediately sees the potential in the 14-year-old prodigy, encouraging him to put his brain to better use.

·       Pioneer entrepreneur and tech guru ALISTAIR KREI is voiced by ALAN TUDYK (“Tell,” “Welcome to Me,” “42”). San Fransokyo Institute of Technology’s most illustrious alum and owner of the biggest technology company in the world, Krei Tech, is always on the hunt for the next big thing. Krei attends the showcase at San Fransokyo Tech and is overwhelmingly impressed by Hiro’s ingenuity.

·       YOKAI is the silent masked man behind the terrible tragedy that strikes San Fransokyo, turning Hiro’s world upside down. As a result, Hiro transforms a group of nerds into a team of high-tech crime fighters—“Big Hero 6”—with one mission: Track down Yokai and bring him to justice.

ABOUT “MILLION DOLLAR ARM”:

Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (Madhur Mittal) and Rinku (Suraj Sharma), two young men who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India — the boys, who have never left their rural villages — are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball — JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell) — learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

For those who pre-order the book early through http://kellyminter.com/wherever-the-river-runs/, Minter is offering special gifts, such as free access to the new interactive digital version of her book, The Fitting Room, the song “My Portion” from her album Loss, Love and Legacy, her Brazilian brownie recipe and, for the first 100 preorders, a Lifeway Women Audio Devotional with teaching from Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer and others.

Here is what Moore and others are saying about Wherever the River Runs:

 

“Kelly Minter writes the way a portrait artist paints. In Wherever the River Runs, faces come alive with color, texture, and depth and eyes glisten, widen and squint. Through Kelly’s pen, pages animate with distinct personalities. Voices find soundtracks, and names are never detached from the warm-blooded people they represent. We know God’s presence is on that river because we, too, can see Him there on the pages.”
- Beth Moore, Living Proof Ministries 

“I read everything Kelly Minter writes because she knows and walks with Jesus in a way that is not only exceedingly rare and authentic—but profoundly Scriptural and deeply inspirational. Wherever the River Runs will inspire you not to settle for anything less than taking leaps of faith.”

- Ann Voskamp, author of the New York Times bestseller One Thousand Gifts

“The best thing I can say about Wherever the River Runs is that I closed the last page, bowed my head, and said, ‘God, send me too.’ The second best thing I can say is that I handed my underlined, highlighted copy to my 14-year-old daughter and said, ‘These are my dreams for you.’ Thank you, Kelly, for your courage, leadership and faithfulness. You are a true sister. Thank you for lending your strength to our generation.”
- Jen Hatmaker, blogger / speaker / author

“The gospel is bearing fruit all over the world—from the biggest cosmopolitan cities to the most remote jungle villages. Kelly’s account of the love of God at work among the economically deprived and socially overlooked communities of the Amazon is at once moving, challenging and inspiring. Read this book, and allow God to expand your vision of the life-changing power of the gospel of Christ in the world today.”

- Stuart Townend, musician, worship leader and songwriter of “In Christ Alone”

“Nobody can weave words together to tell stories the way Kelly can. She is warm, witty, and inspiring all at the same time. As you read Wherever the River Runs, you’ll find yourself nodding your head, underlining your favorite passages, and falling in love all over again with a God who takes us on amazing adventures and uses us in ways we never could have imagined.”

- Melanie Shankle, New York Times bestselling author of Sparkly Green Earrings and The Antelope in the Living Room

“With vibrant imagery and a disarming vulnerability, Kelly Minter draws you into her heart to meet the people and the God who have expanded its borders beyond her imagination. You will find your own heart beating with conviction and a longing for the fullness of life found when we are willing to lose it.”

- Lauren Chandler, worship leader and songwriter

“This book is amazing! You can truly feel the love and Presence of Jesus on every page. Kelly’s heart for the forgotten people of the world shines through, and God’s Spirit will compel you to be involved. Kelly not only talks about ministry, she lives it. I am so thankful for my friend, and this is a must-read for anyone who follows Jesus!”

- Jeff Simmons, pastor of Rolling Hills Community and president of Justice and Mercy International

Minter’s honest and engaging narrative pulls back the curtain on parts of the gospel we may be able to recite, but have never fully believed.  For anyone feeling complacent in their American Christianity, Minter’s story is a life-changing reminder that wherever you live, whatever your calling, the gospel is alive, powerful and always enough.

Here’s another great giveaway thanks to Goodyear.  I am thankful I don’t have to worry about my tires.  I trust Goodyear. Read on to find out more about them and how you can win. Good luck!

When it comes to vehicle maintenance how often do you think about your tires? Is it always the last thing on your mind, or the first?

For me, tires are really important. I drive A LOT, and I know that a good set of tires can make the difference in inclement weather. Coming from someone who has put over 180,000 miles on just one of our three vehicles in seven short years….you know that I value having a great set of wheels under my car.

Tire Buying Tips

While tire buying make not seem that exciting, Goodyear offers these tips for when you need to make your next tire purchase:

  • First, find the make and model of your vehicle. Your version/option might also be required, which is sometimes called your package level. Version/option can affect your tire size. It should be located on an information placard in your vehicle. In vehicles made after 2005, this placard will be located in the driver’s side door. In older vehicles, the placard may be located instead in the rear passenger doorjamb, fuel filler, glove box or center console, or engine compartment. For example, the version/option of a Honda Accord EX V6 is EX V6.

  • You can also use your tire size. Your tire size should be on your tire’s sidewall. It could also be listed on the placard inside your driver’s side door, or in your owner’s manual.

  • Factors like whether you drive around town, take frequent long trips, or drive on- or off-road should influence your decision, as tires are designed to serve a variety of functions, like street performance, long, comfortable rides, enduring treadwear, and enhanced grip.

  • Ask what’s included in the tire price, such as balancing, valve stem replacement, installation, Tire Pressure Monitor System service, and wheel alignment, which could be necessary if the previous tires wore unevenly.

  • Selecting optional Road Hazard Coverage will protect your tires from scrap metal or other items that could puncture them.

  • If you end up with more than one choice, our sales professionals can discuss the features and benefits of each tire with you, so you can make a confident decision.

About Goodyear

For over 100 years, Goodyear has been creating innovative products and services that set the technology and performance standards for the tire industry. As a recent recipient of the 2013 Women’s Choice Awards for “America’s Best” Premium Brand Tire; Tire Retailer; and Auto Service Retailer; Goodyear is continually striving to put excellent performing tires on the road, applying time-honored customer care, innovation and expertise to the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season model.

  • The Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season tire features responsive handling and confident all-season traction.
  • This new high-performance tire also carries a 50,000-mile tread life limited warranty.
  • In the tire, an innovative tread compound offers outstanding wet and dry performance, with enhanced grip in ice and snow. The use of silica in the rubber compound of the tread helps to improve treadwear and all-season traction.
  • The tread design is asymmetric with full-depth sipes that offer biting edges as the tire wears.  A rim protector feature helps to protect wheels against accidental curb damage.

Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks as I give these tires a try on my car. I’ll be switching out my current tires for the Goodyear all season tires and I’ll be sure to let you know what I think!
