For Safety's Sake......Back to School and for YOU!!


I don't have any crafty stuff to post for "What Are You Making?" Wednesday. However I would like to share with you some important info. I know we all worry about our kid's and our own safety. Most of you probably already know this, but for those of you who don't, you can find if
SEX OFFENDERS are living in your neighborhood. In the United States check out your County Sheriff's official site. Here in SNOHOMISH COUNTY Wa. the link is HERE.

You can see how many predators live within a half a mile to 2 miles from your home. It will tell you if they are level I II or III. What they were convicted of, how many counts, the sex and age of the victim(s), the general area they live in, and a photo.

I think being pro-active and staying informed, can at least hopefully help keep our children and our neighbors children safer.

  3. Hi, Jody! Isn't it sad that we even have to think about this? Sad, but true...and very important to stay on top of and keep our kids aware of. Thanks for the reminder...and hope your back to school time is a happy one! (Love that adorable vintage image, by the way!)

  5. Lucky you to win the giveaway. I really don't want to know how many people like that live by me...I'd probably want to stay inside.
    Being aware probably is a good thing. Keeping my eyes open too. Trusting God is also a good thing to keep us safe.
