And the award goes to...

Before I get started with my new teacher series tomorrow, I need to thank those of you who have given me awards lately. Every time I get a message about an award, it just makes me happy. Work has kept me super busy this summer, but I don't want to start my series without a big THANK YOU!

I'm a new teacher. I'm moving grades. I'm terrible at organization. I still have so much to learn. And yet, your comments on this blog and little things like these awards make me feel like a good teacher and make me want to push myself to be a better one- so thank you for giving me confidence that I have something to offer!

I was awarded the Versatile Blogger Award or Lovely Blogger Award (again) by these fantastic bloggers:

The Second Grade Superkids
Teachers Don't Steal, They Share!
Lovin' Kindergarten
Surfing to Success
A Passion for Primary
Inspired in Second
Simply Second Grade
Innovate, Relate, and Create
Third Grade's a Charm
Totally Terrific in Texas
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
Second Grade Smartypants

I tell ya, it is downright tricky finding new blogs that don't already have these awards- but here are some new blogs that I thought you all should check out! (Hopefully you don't all have the awards already- feel free to accept whichever one you haven't gotten yet! If you have gotten them... well, hopefully the shout-out will get you a few new followers :)

Alright- the Versatile Blogger Award asks me to tell you 7 random facts about myself. (LOVE this.) But I'm going to tell you 8 things- and let you guess which one is false! Here goes:

1.  I have taken some kind of dance lessons for 15 years.
2.  I've eaten the food they give to monkeys at the zoo.
3.  My husband was impersonating his best friend when we met.
4.  My favorite food is peanut butter pie.
5.  I would love to go to Costa Rica someday and stay in the rainforest.
6.  Someday, I want to be a principal.
7.  I am a partial owner of the Green Bay Packers football team.
8.  I have kissed a stingray.

Which one is false? First person to guess gets to choose the topic of a Scoot game freebie! (Make sure you leave your email with your guess!)

Stay tuned tomorrow for the winner/ answer, and the start of my new teacher series! (So excited!)

Don't forget to spread the word about Hats for Kenton, even if you're not sending something!


  1. How about #6? (

  2. I was thinking number 6 but Tammy beat me to it. HaHa! So I will say number 4.

  4. Number 1?

    Thanks for the award!!

  5. Thanks so much for the award!!! You made my day! :)

  6. I would totally guess #7, but someone else already did. I want to know if that's true though, because that would be AWESOME! Although I am notttt a Packers fan, Rodgers is pretty darn good though! I happen to be a die-hard Pats fan :)

    T.G.I.F. (Thank God it's First Grade!)

  7. My first guess was going to be #7, but since others have guessed it I will say #5. Thanks so much for nominating me for the award. You are too sweet. :)

    First with Franklin

  8. I think you ARE a partial owner of the Packers, because I know they sell shares every so often. We almost bought one for my dad this year, but I think we'll get him one next time around. Love that they're owned by the fans. That being said, I don't know which one isn't true. LOL

    Anyway, this is why I came over- you need to check out this site:
    Visit them today because they have the most adorable Arrested Development shirt EVER and it's going to be replaced tomorrow with another. TeeFury is great because they have shirts for cheap (ten dollars) and a new design every day.
