A New Award!

Lexi from Lextin Academy has given me the Liebster Award! What a wonderful honor from such a nice blogger. The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have not yet hit the 200 follower mark. The award is presented by a fellow blogger as a sort of pat on the back "you've got a great thing started" type of award. "Liebster" is German for favorite.

The rules
1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

My Facts
1. I was not homeschooled, although I now wish I was!
2. I love being outside creeking, gardening, sitting, swimming, hiking, you name it.
3. I have been to 7 countries outside of the United States.
4. My first vehicle was a truck that I paid for myself.
5. When I'm having a bad day, my sweet husband brings home chocolate and peanut butter cups.
6. I have taught college/university classes for the last 11 years.
7. Soup and homemade bread are staples at our house in the winter.
8. I am not all that fond of camping (even though I love being outside) and we still do it every year.
9. Last year, we purchased an old camper and I spent 3 weeks gutting and painting it.
10. I met my husband my freshman year of college.
11. We have beautiful sunsets from our back deck and sunrises from our front stoop (if I'd ever get up early enough to see them).

My Answers
1.  Who or what inspired you to homeschool? The good Lord laid it on my heart when my oldest was about one.
2.  What is your favorite book? I love all of Jane Austin's books (even the ones unfinished)
3.  What is your favorite subject to teach? I love teaching nature studies.
4.  Where would you go on your dream vacation? Hawaii
5.  What is your favorite game to play with your kids? It's a tie between Mancala or Trash
6.  What is your least favorite household chore? Bathrooms!
7.  What is your proudest achievement? Being humble enough to be saved by Grace.
8.  What is something you've said or done that you always said you would never do or say? Grinding my teeth.
9.  What surprises you most about your child or children? How much they teach me.
10.  If you could have any animal for a pet, what would you choose? A couple of alpaca.

Thank you!! I can't believe I missed this...I vaguely remember seeing it, but must not have been awake when I got it. Thank you! I'm posting and linking now. And my hubby also brings me chocolate when I have a bad day - MUCH better than flowers ;o)

Joelle said...

Thanks Bethany for the award. I finally got around to answer your questions and acknowledge the award.

Bethany said...

I agree. I wouldn't know what to do if Poppa brought flowers to me. (He's allergic) :)

Bethany said...

Yeah! It took me a bit to get my questions together too!
