"The Noun Game" Linky Party

Well, I have to say that it has been really fun looking at others Blogs and trying to guess which of their 3 statements was a lie.  I'm not sure I can remember all of them that I went to but I am going to try and go back and see what some of them said.  So for some of you that are waiting to hear what my lie was, here it is.
I am NOT a golfer but my family loves to play. I am the cart driver when they all decide to go play 9 holes. Maybe some day I will learn how to play but for right now I enjoy riding along and watching my family.

My daughter won Regionial her Senior year.

My son plays during the summer in a league.

Sooooo for my 2 true statements.
#1 ~ Yes, I was a swimmer for 11 years and 4 of those years was in College. I swam for New Mexico State University and yes, I almost made it to the Olympic Trails.  Here is a picture of me at one of our practices outside. I loved swimming outside because of the GREAT tans that you would get.
I am in the middle of the picture with the
black swim cap on and white swim suit.
#2 ~ Yes, I do ride a motorcylce and I LOVE it. Once the weather starts getting nicer and the snow stops falling (yes, we got snow yesterday here in Kansas), I will be riding to work.
So, there you have it.  A little sneek into my life.  I am now going to linky up with Flying Into First Grade again for her next linky.  Here it is:
The NOUN Game
This should be an easy one because you don't have to think of a lie. It is all great information about yourself.  Here is what you do:
 You simply just name your favorite person, place, thing and animal.  That's it.  Here are my favorite nouns.
Person:   My favorite people are my children. (I can't just pick one) I love to watch them particpate in whatever activity that they are in for that time of the year. It can be basketball, golf, track, the school play, band, forensics, etc..... They love to be active and I love that they are.
Place:  My favorite place to be is in my classroom. I just love how I feel when I am there. It is like a Home away from Home for me.  And when everyone has left for the day and I am still there working, it is a peaceful time for me as while.
Thing:  I guess for this one I would have to say my computer because I am always on my computer even if I am watching TV.  I love to visit Blogs and read about other teachers and the exciting things that they are doing in their classrooms.
Animal:  My favorite animal/pet are cats.  I love that they are cuddley but yet independent enough that I don't always have to play with them. 
So there you have it. A little more about myself. I hope that you will join along.  Leave a comment so that I can visit your blog and learn about you as well.
Until Next Time,
         Happy Blogging

  6. Hi there! I found you through the Kansas blogger linky and I will be teaching 2nd grade next year! I'm so excited. I've been in 1st for three years and I love it, but everyone I talk to says they like 2nd grade better! :-)

    I love watching my kids participate in their activities too -- although I'm ready for a WARM track meet! This Kansas weather has been crazy!
