Well I was tagged two or three times, but I am going to go with the first "tagger". Sorry I am a little late responding, this week is very very busy...and throw in planning a birthday party for Super Bowl Sunday! WHEW!!!!

You know how your students always make up their own rules to the games they play...well I must admit so did I :) 

So here you go: (could this be more complicated?!??!?)
Think Wonder & Teach has tagged me!

The rules are as follows, sort of made them "my own":
  1. Post the rules
  2. Post 12 things about yourself
  3. Answer the 12 questions sent from the person that tagged you.  Then create 12 new questions for the people you tag  Sorry guys could barely think of 12 things about myself...and it's only Wednesday!
  4. Tag 12 5 people and link them to your post
  5. Let them know you tagged them.

Hehehehe... Thanks for the TAG! But I think I tagged you originally. =P Can you send me a link to the Third Grade Gridiron? I am trying to find that blog now.

And I am in the process of buying more binders. I have a collection going and hubby is starting to think I am losing my mind. I might be... who knows!
