Thank You for My Versatile Blogger Award

It's been raining for 4 days straight here on the East coast of NC and today our local schools are closed due to more rain and a tropical storm.  One advantage to homeschooling...I'm able to teach rain or shine.  (Although, I do allow my children to have snow days and cancel school since we rarely see the white stuff around here :)

So despite the lack of sunshine these past several days, Rebecca at Mom's Mustard Seeds passed on some blog sunshine by awarding my blog the Versatile Blog Award.  It was such a wonderful, unexpected surprise to receive this award from a beautiful blog!  Thank you Rebecca for passing this on to me!

To accept the Versatile Blogger Award the rules are:

  • Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Pass it along to 15 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
  • Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award

Now 7 things about me:
  1. My favorite scripture verse is John 20:29. Look it up. You'll be blessed.
  2. One memory I have from my elementary Catholic school days is when my teacher (Sister ?) stopped class every time we heard a siren outside. We would then say a prayer for the doctors, nurses, victim(s). When our family hears a siren, we say a prayer.
  3. I was playing volleyball at our local beach in 1992 when I met my best friend & future husband.  We've been married since July 12, 1997.
  4. I couldn't homeschool without my husband's constant love, support and encouragement and without the support of the families in my homeschool group.  And now recently I am encouraged by all the comments and emails on my blog :)
  5. Three out of four of my children were born on the 19th of the month.  My first two are exactly 17 months apart. They were both born on a Friday, the 19th.
  6. My husband and I have been certified Natural Family Planning (NFP) teachers since 2003.
    What is NFP? Go to my blog page here.
  7. I love creating and sending unique, personalized, and creative greeting cards using the SendOutCards web based greeting card system!
And the best part of getting this award is being able to pass it on to the following 15 wonderful blogs:

Thanks again Rebecca at Mom's Mustard Seeds for passing on this award to me!

Hi Anna-Marie!
Glad you liked my recent posts. I showed the Mom song to my husband and children last night and they were laughing. My son was amazed the woman could talk so fast and remember ALL the words! That's what he got out of the video :)
Yes, our Ark is built and I'm so glad it's raining now vs. next week when we have plans to meet you! So you shouldn't need your ark for next week :) So excited to meet up with you!

Congrats on your bloggy awards! I just voted for you on both sites!

Thanks Staci for your visit and thanks for your votes :) I just hopped onto your blog and I love your blog banner! So cute :) I voted for your "Big Hit" contest :) I also left a comment on your blog :)
Have a good weekend!

I love the idea of praying when you hear a siren. I do that occasionally myself, without any real plan to do so... I just know that I feel unsettled when I hear the sirens and the urge to pray "comes on." I think it would be great to teach this practice to my kids. What a wonderful teacher you had.
