  1. What an amazing job you did of answering all of those questions . . . if it's any help, I don't think I can do it . . . such a gift, though, to be included in this fun game by so many cyberspace friends. Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your world this morning. Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Ha ha Great Tara! I was so happy to play tag but it was a workout! lol
    Have a Great Weekend!

  4. Who could hate you Tara?? I loved reading this. I don't really like big crowds either and use the same strategy! I hope you have a relaxing weekend with your family. :)

  5. Loved reading this! I love Tebow, too! Go Broncos!

  6. Hi Tara:
    It's smooth peanut butter for me too!
    And I'm such a control freak, I've been accused of trying to direct the dust in my room.
    I just cannot believe you have only been teaching five years...

  7. I love Third Day AND Adele! :)
    I can't believe you have taught all of those grades in such a short time. Did you just keep getting bumped up each year???? Wow. I can't believe it. What's your favorite grade???

  8. I agree with you - switching grades constantly would be a nightmare! I am hoping to start in one grade and stay there. What is your favorite grade to teach and why?

  9. Tara, I will say a prayer that you get to stay with 4th grade! Changing curriculum every year would be exhausting (but good for the resume?)!

    Somehow, I was not tagged in this game, BUT that is OK. I'm not much of a runner, lol! :-)


  10. I was drum major my senior year in high school! Band was one of my favorite memories from high school and I miss it. I think it's awesome you picked a question from each tag...good idea :)
