2. My husband and sister-in-law have both won Teacher of the Year Awards and I have not, even though I have taught in my school longer than they have taught in theirs. *sniff*
3. I teach first grade and one year when we were studying money, one of my students brought in two Sacajawea golden dollars to show the class. He put them on his tongue when I wasn't looking and closed his mouth. When I saw that something was in his mouth, I asked him what it was and he tried to show me. One of the golden dollars came out but he accidentally swallowed the other one and had to go to the ER. The next day he brought in x-rays of the golden dollar in his stomach.
4. I gave birth to both of my children naturally without drugs. It wasn't the plan, but I have scoliosis and they couldn't get the epidural in.
5. I am a die hard Twilight fan but I hide the books from my 7 year old because I don't want her to know.
6. Growing up, my sisters called me "the milkman's kid" because I am the middle child of three girls and I have stick straight hair while both of my sisters have curly hair.
7. I met Handsome Hubby through my online graduate program. The rest of our group members (who were all also teachers, hmph) totally left us with all of the work in a group project so we had a lot of "quality time" working together and got to know each other fairly well before ever meeting in person.
Well, kids... there you have it! I want to lovingly bestow this award upon a few blogs that I recently discovered and really enjoy and I can't wait to see what creative things they come up with (and if I can guess the truth!):

Christine at Christine's Journey sent me this Prolific Blogger award. A prolific blogger 'is one who is intellectually productive...keeping up an active blog that is filled with enjoyable content.' I'm not sure how intellectually productive things are 'round here lately but I will try to give you a smile when I can. :) Thanks, Christine!
