Thank you so much!!!

Rules - After receiving this award write down eleven things about yourself, and then answer the questions I posted. Create eleven new questions (for the people you tag) to answer. Then let the people you tagged (as many or as little as you want) know that you awarded them. Most importantly though, have fun!

Eleven things about myself would be...

1 - My Mother was born in England.

10 - I want to be a high school English/History teacher, as odd as it sounds from a homeschooler.
