The rules of the Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:
Thank the person who gave you the award by linking back to them in your post.
Tell us seven things about yourself.
Award fifteen recently discovered new bloggers.
7 things about me:
*I turned 18, graduated from high school, married my high school sweetheart, and moved 3 hours from home all within 6 months of each other.
*I've never had a roommate other than my husband. I am an only child and I was married when I started college so I never lived in the dorms.
*My oldest child was born the week before dead week during the spring semester of my sophomore year of college. I had to call one of my professors from the hospital to let him know I was going to miss the exam that day. :) I took her with me to make up that exam when she was less than a week old. She also went to class with me a couple of times. So, you could definitely say she's been a "Cowboy" since the day she was born.
*I taught public school for 8 1/2 years-1 year of second grade, 2 years of first grade, 2 years of kindergarten, and 3 1/2 of PreK. The kids I had my first year of teaching will graduate from high school next year. That makes me feel old!
*In November 2009, I officially became a stay-at-home mom. We took my son out of public school PreK and brought him home. He had been in daycare since he was 8 weeks old. He is a completely different child these days.
*This has been our first year of homeschooling our kids. It's been an adventure and I've far from done it perfectly, but I love it! I've learned a lot this year and I know next year will be even better.
*I don't like to do things outdoors. The only exception is fishing. I absolutely love to go fishing. I think my dad was taking me fishing probably before I could walk. When I went to my daughter's outdoor day at school last year, I was the only mom who was brave enough to help the kids bait their hooks and take the fish off when they caught one.
