I’m honored to have received some WONDERFUL awards during the last month since I received and passed on the Outstanding Blogger Award. I’m SO grateful to have received the Sunshine Award, Versatile Blogger Award, and Wild about Your Blog Award!

For the Sunshine Award and Versatile Blogger Award, I’m supposed to say thanks to the person who gave me the award, share 7 things about myself, and pass on the award to 10-20 bloggers who I have recently discovered and think are fantastic! I’ll pass the Wild about Your Blog Award on to blogs I discovered more than a month ago. I’m going to tell just 7 things total so you’re still awake when I pass on the awards.

First, the 7 things about myself.

1. I’m a book addict! I haven’t been able to part with a lot of the books from raising/homeschooling my children – so I’m ready when grandchildren come along!

2. I have monovision. (I see distance out of my right eye and read with my left eye.) I had laser surgery to correct the extreme nearsightedness in my right eye. My left eye is still extremely nearsighted but works well for reading.

3. I LOVE motivational quotes and enjoy creating digital word art. I also enjoy digital scrapbooking but don’t do it nearly as often as I’d like.

4. I’m like the family paparazzi! I carry a camera in my purse so I’m always ready to take photos.

5. Tuesday night is my favorite night of the week because it’s date night!

6. My husband and I had a sunrise wedding 35 years ago in our best friends’ backyard. It was magical. Their neighbor’s cat agreed (it was there).

7. Both my children received their bachelor’s degrees in the same year and were married within 8 months of each other.

Now, for the thank yous and passing on of the awards!!  

I’m going to focus on Montessori/homeschooling/parenting/education blogs today. Even so, I’m only able to award a fraction of the blogs I love. That’s the hard part.

Thank you SO much, Sunrise Learning Lab!
