Thanks for the Award!

Thank you to my new friend Amy at Adventures in Teaching for this fun award. 


Here are my 7 random facts about 'lil old me:
1)  I have three grown children ranging in age from 27 to 21 and am the proud "little grandma" to one fabulous 4 year old grandbaby Kayla;
2)  I have been teaching my whole life but have had my own classroom 7 years.  I have a special son who taught me that it was better to stay at home and figure out this thing we call Autism before entering the teaching was something that I learned the most from and would never change;
3)  I have an imagination that never quits.  I swear my brain never truly goes to sleep...creating is my passion;
4)  I'm deathly afraid of stuck 3 times...3 strikes your out;
5)  I "met" my husband years before I met him...I was working in a nursing home in a total care unit while going to school and one of my darling residents kept yelling "Teed".  I always wondered who/what that was until years later when I met and married Mr. Teed;
6)  The mantle that we have above our fireplace was from my kindergarten teacher's husband knew my kindergarten teacher and her family...spooky isn't it...I think it was all in God's plan;
7)  I am a champion polka dancer with my little brother...yup...we can still kick up our heals!
