Let's Get Acquainted Linky

I should be grading papers, but Flying into First Grade's Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party sounded like so much more fun!  So here goes...

This week it's the Noun Game. My favorite person, place, thing, and animal?  Hmmm....

Person:  I'd have to say my daughter.  She's one of the most creative people I know.  She and her roommate helped me make made some great posters for a special celebration we're having at school later this week.  They let me color the backgrounds of the letters they drew.  Even that was a stretch for my level of artistic ability.

My daughter recently completed a 5k with me.

Place:  My favorite place is the beach.  It doesn't really matter which one.  I love beaches.  There's just something special about standing at the water's edge.  I'm fortunate that I can walk a block and a half from my house to a small beach on the strait. 

My husband and grandbaby on our little beach.

Thing:  My favorite thing ties in nicely with my favorite place.  My favorite thing is my stand up paddle board.  I haven't been able to paddle in over 2 years because of a series of shoulder surgeries, but I look at my board in the garage almost every day.  Actually, I have two boards and two outrigger canoes.  I love them all.  Sadly, they are gathering dust, but I hope to be paddling again by this summer.

Paddling with Tucker.

Animals:  That one was easy.  I've got 3 miniature Australian Shepherds who are the loves of my life: Tucker, Aggie, and Gus  Okay, so Gus is not very mini now.  In fact, we call him our maxi mini.  Tucker and Gus are avid disc dogs.  Aggie prefers a well tossed chuck-it ball again, and again, and again, and again, and...well you get the picture.  Our house is often crazy and never dull with these three pups.

My wild ones: Aggie, Gus, and Tucker

So that's it for my Let's Get Acquainted.  Now I suppose I should grade at least one set of papers before calling it a night.
