I got an award!

I'm so excited! Aimee over at Girl Talk gave me an award today!
Go over and check out Aimee's blog. She writes about all sorts of fun stuff-how to have style on a budget, her awesome crafts (check out her "crafts I made" section), and (my favorite part) her two adorable boys! You'll be glad you did!

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.

I've been finding all sorts of fun new blogs lately. I'd like to pass this award on to a few of my favorites:

Congrats on your award! I envy you the ability to be organized enough to homeschool. I always wanted to do that, but knew figured I'd end up doing my kids a disservice.

I supplemented their public school education at home though. I was always coming up with creative activities!

Thanks so much for the award! I'm working on my post for it. ;0)

I enjoyed reading the 7 facts about you. That's so great that you decided to stay home and homeschool. You'll never regret it! Sounds like you're all having a good time with it.

Nice to "meet" another only child. ;0) People just don't realize what it's like, do they?
