And I didn't even have a speech prepared....

Thanks to Tammy @
First Grade at Storybook Cafe I have received my first award. I know I still have so far to go, but thanks so much for the encouragement and help. That is one thing I have noticed about bolggers, well at least teacher bloggers. If you put in your post that you don't know how to get something to work, change something on your blog, etc... Someone will usually give a comment or an email to answer the question and offer extra help if needed. It's too bad everyone isn't as helpful. ; p

Anyway here are the rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you - Thanks Tammy!!!     
  2. Include a link to their site - Look above.
  3. Include the award image in your post - Hey, I learned how to do that yesterday!
  4. Give 7 random facts about yourself - You didn't say interesting, right???
  5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award   Maybe, I'll try.
  6. When nominating, include a link to their site - Check!
  7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated OK

OK, so here go the 7 random facts about me.
1. I was the first person in my immediate family to graduate from college (at the age of 33).
2. I am left-handed and when I was in 5th grade, I broke my left wrist. I learned to write right-handed and have been doing so ever since. I always got C's in penmanship. I write much neater right-handed.
3. I can read, sing, and act as silly as I want in front of my class, but I still sometimes get embarrassed talking at staff meetings and we only have about 14 teachers.
4. I have one delightful nine year old daughter named Delaney.
5. When she was born, I started listening to classical music in the car and then moved on to kid music. It has only been in the last year that we have not listened to Veggie Tales, a Leap Frog cd, or other kids songs. It drives me crazy when daycare vans pull up at school with rap music (not kids rap music) blaring. It ought to be against the law! 
6. When I was about 5, I found some matches at my aunt's house and of course I didn't give them to an adult. I had them in my room playing with them when one of them lit. I dropped it on my bed and started screaming. fortunately my mom was nearby and put the fire out quickly. Did I mention that my youngest sister was in her crib right next to her bed? She still tells everyone I was trying to kill her.
7. I do my best creative thinking when I am talking or typing.

Now for the blogs I'm giving the award to, I don't think it will be 15, we'll see.

  1. Congrats on the award. Veggie Tales rock!

  2. Congratulations! That's interesting about your "handed-ness" changing. I'm a lefty and my dad tried incessantly to change that when I was younger-wasn't happening! :)


  3. Congrats on the award! The title of your blog made me giggle! Very cute! I'm a new follower!

  4. I love the title of your blog. I had a kid ask me once, in all sincerity, if I was Santa. I decided to take it as a compliment too. I'm your newest follower. Thanks for following me.
