My First Blogger Award!



Wow!  I am honored to receive my first blogger award!  Thank you to St. Francis De Sales Homeschool for the "Versatile Blogger Award". 
Here are the rules:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
  • Tell your readers 7 things about yourself.
  • Give this award to 15 recently discovered bloggers.
  • Contact those bloggers and let them in on the news.
Okay, seven things about myself....  Hmmm. Grab a cup of coffee or something with caffiene because this wont be too exciting! :)

1 - I had my 6th baby at the young age of 46.

2 - My oldest son is headed to Hillsdale College in the fall, and my baby is 1.

3 - My favorite vacation is camping - anywhere.  I like condo's on a beach too, but tent camping is my all time favorite.  Hotels are too confining for this family with 5 rough and rowdy boys!

4 - I was a classroom teacher for 10 years before I started homeschooling.  I loved the classroom but I love teaching my own children even more.

5 - My favorite time of the school year is the planning time!  I love to plan and I love to look at new curriculum.  Nothing is more exciting than a blank spreadsheet just waiting to be filled in!

6 - I don't like jelly beans!

7 - My favorite meal is anything eaten with my husband in a nice, quiet and peaceful atmosphere.  So PB&J in the car in a parking lot works just fine!

Now I'm supposed to pass this award on to 15 recently discovered blogs.  I will admit that not all 15 of these are recently discovered, but if you haven't discovered them I highly recommend them!
