As the rules state, you must:Rule # 1.) Thank the person who gave the award.
Rule # 2.) Share 7 things about yourself:
1.) I have taught art for 15 years and never plan on retiring. Ok, maybe someday, but I cannot see myself doing anything else!
2) I have been married to my husband, John for 18 years. We began dating at age 14, so I have spent most of my life with him in it.
3.) We have two children, Nathan, and Nick. Nick is a freshman this year and I couldn't be prouder. We lost our older son, Nate, 4 years ago to an AVM (ArterioVenous Malformation) when he was 13. If you are interested, you may learn more about my son on his memorial website.
4.) I was the only one of my friends to declare a major and stick with it as a freshman. However, I also contemplated going into forensic pathology. My brother is in law enforcement, so I live vicariously through him.
5.) I will be forty this year and am not ashamed to admit I love the Backstreet Boys and am a member of a fan forum.
6.) I am addicted to the internet and check various sites and blogs every day.
7.) I recently started running, following the Couch to 5K program. My husband signed us up for a 5K on October 2 and I am scared I won't be ready!!
