Happy New Year and The Versatile Blogger Award!

So excited! Mrs. Egley's Kindergarten and Tanya at Ms.Solano's Kindergarten have nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award! Thank you so much! I love blogging -something I do on my own time. I love to share ideas - have thought about making units to sell, but not right now - there are already so many great units to choose from and I work much to slow! :)

Now on to the blog award rules... 

1. Thank the person that nominated you with a link back to them. (Thank you again to 2 wonderful bloggers!)

2. Tell 7 things about yourself. (see below)

3. Pass this award on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know that they’ve received an award!  (This was so hard since I find so many fabulous ones out ones everyday!)

    Seven things about myself:

    1. I have been teaching a long time- for about 23 years! Many days, I still feel like a new teacher. Every year is so different and has unique challenges.
    2. I have 3 children ( ages 23, 17, and 14) and lots of stepchildren!
    3. I remarried 5 years ago to the best guy ever! He has the greatest heart!
    4. I live in the most beautiful place and only 5 minutes away from the marsh and the beach! Paradise!
    5. Technology does not come easy to me - I really have to work at it and I still struggle at times!
    6. My middle son has Aspergers - sometimes it is tough, but he is a love! I have a special place in my heart for kids that do not always "fit in the box!"
    7. I love to read real books, bake, create things, and walk on the beach. Pinterest is my new passion! :)
    15 + Newly Discovered Blogs -at least for me!

    Thank you for awarding the Versatile Blogger award to my blog. I am brand new to this and am enjoying getting to know other teachers like you. I had become a follower of your blog a few days ago and love a lot of your ideas! By the way, my younger son has Asperger's too...and I feel exactly the same way you wrote on your 7 things about yourself. Thanks for sharing!
