Liebster Award... Whoo Hoo!!

First of all, I have not blogged in SEVERAL days!!  I have had the opportunity this summer to present at various workshops and inservice centers and it has truly occupied LOTS of my free time. I have been inspired with the teachers that I have met across the state of Alabama this summer.  My youngest son is having a 4 year old birthday bash this weekend AND I am teaching VBS at church this week. I have 60 bundles of pine straw sitting in my flower beds as we speak.. blah blah get the idea!!  BUSY BUSY BUSY!!  I feel like I will have better posts once this week is over and done. 
 Now with all of that said, I want to give a great big THANK YOU to Tracie Penn for nominating me for the Liebster Award.  I am MOST honored and blessed!!  Her link is:
