Liebster Blog Award for Me

This past weekend I was in bed with one wretched virus! When I finally mustered up the energy to check my email on my phone I got this lovely message "Mara and Lauren has left a new comment on your post New Student? No Problem!:  We nominated you for a Liebster Award. Check out our site for more details about the nomination."

This just made my weekend THIS MUCH BETTER, as for the most part I had been in bed watching items that had accumulated on my PVR. I had no idea anyone but me and maybe a good friend or two had been reading my blog! 

Mara and Lauren are two Catholic school teachers from New York City who write a blog about their lives teaching in Grades 1 and 4.

2. Answer the question that the nominator set for you.
3. Create 11 questions for the people you nominate.
4. Choose 11 other blogs with under 200 followers to nominate and link them in your post.
5. You cannot "tag back" the other blog, but leave a comment on this post with the URL of your Liebster post so I can learn more about you and see who you nominate.
