Happy Note!

Hello Friends!   Just wanted to share a "warm -n- fuzzy" with you for the week.   I received two emails today from the sweetest blog followers nominating me for the "Liebster BLOG Award!"   One of the reasons I love these type of awards is because it is a GREAT way to find new blogs... and new friends! Also... it's such a great way to learn more about blogging buddies!   Of course, I always love to hear about all the amazing ideas other teachers are using in their classrooms around the world... but it is also so fun to learn about the teacher-bloggers themselves!  With that being said, I realize that sometimes I'm not the best at sharing personal fun facts and interests... so this is a great way for ME to share too!  Here goes!!!

To accept the nomination I must:
1. Link back to the blog that nominated me
2. Nominate 5-11 blogs with fewer than 200 followers
3. Answer the questions posted for you by your nominator
4. Share 11 random facts about yourself
5. Create 11 questions for your nominees
6. Contact your nominees and let them know you nominated them

So first off... I want to say THANK YOU to these fine ladies for nominating me.  Their blogs are be sure to check them out!

9. What is your favorite children's book?  Pete the Cat is my current FAV
10. Do you prefer the mountains or the beach?  Beach
11. Name one special thing about the town you live in.   I live in the "country" on my grandpa's old farm land.  When he retired from farming, all of the aunts, uncles and cousins built houses on his for about 3 miles in every direction we are surrounded by family.  It is AWESOME!   Everyone in the area calls it "Ehle-ville."   SUCH a blessing to raise my kids here!

Ok... Now for my nominees!!!   There are SO many great bloggers out there! Here are just a few I'm honored to share with you!!!  Check them out! They are not necessarily "new" bloggers...but great ones!
