Cindy over at the Martha Complex gave me an award! Wow, I have never recieved an award!

With this award I am supposed to share 7 things about myself, and then pass the blog award on to some blogs that I enjoy. Follow below to see the blogs I nominated...

1. I miss being at home. I do like my job but I also liked being at home and having a lot more feedom to choose what to do with my day. I feel like I am making a difference in some of the students I work with. But my deepest heart's desire ts to be in my own classroom.
2. I have begun to read a short devotional every morning when I get to school. Sometimes I miss but for the most part, I read one and say a little prayer. It really has helped me to stay focused on what God is using me for. Also, the amazing thing is that what I read usually pertains to what I'm struggling with! God is so cool!
3. I am reading this book called "TEACH like your hair is on fire" by Rafe Esquith. This teacher has an amazing perspective and gives some really good advice on how to teach effectively. I think it should be a required reading for all Teachers, but that's just me!
4. I am taking myself on a mini-vacation the first few days of Spring Break. I am hoping my BFF will join me! I can't tell you where it is, but WHEN  I make that RSVP, you'll be the first to know!
5. We are working OH so HARD on our Children's Christmas musical. It's going to be a real HOOT!
Heather and I feel like we are going to lose our minds but I know we'll both be welling up with tears b/c we will be so proud of our kiddos!
6. My boy earned his Bobcat badge last night at Cub Scouts! I am super proud of him and I think he really likes Scouting. We are the Den Leaders and there are nine boys. They have a lot of fun together and I have a great group of parents who are very involved and have made the committment to stick with scouting.
7. I don't normally share a lot of private and personal information, but I am seeking God's face in our efforts to have another child. One of the options we are thinking about is sperm donation. Its something I am praying about. I can't really entertain the specifics until after the new year because our insurance is going to change. It's just one of those things that requires a lot of prayer and consideration.
Thanks Cindy for the AWARD!!! 
NOW, its my turn to hand out the STYLISH BLOG award!

Five Q Friday

I know, I know...I haven't blogged in like a 100 years. That new job keeps me busy and very tired! So I figures this was a good start to get back on least for today!

. What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you?
Hands down! my scoliosis surger at age 12. There are no words to describe that kind of pain. Thank God for a great surgeon and a great hospital. My C-section runs a close second to that one!

2. How much sleep do you get at night?
On average, 6-7 hours. Not quite enough for a girl who loves her some sleep!

3. How long did you believe in Santa Claus? How did you find out that he does not exist?
I was about 7 or 8. Thats really young to stop believing in Santa. I just figured it out on my own.
4. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?
The Last Song

5. What do you wear to bed?
my house is like an igloo b/c of the hubs so I usually wear long pj pants and a t-shirt, then I cover up with three blankets to stay warm.
