Thanks for hosting! It was a lot of fun to come up with the answers and learn about other bloggers.
Hey, you did almost a week! That counts for something to me! I give partial credit all the time to my students!! ;-) Haha!
I agree! It was fun! Next year I will have to be more creative and create questions. Those I found in a google search haha!
It is so hard to blog daily! I did write a few the day before and schedule it to post when I knew I would be so busy!
It was great to find your blog through doing this! :-)

I had so much fun reading everyone's posts. I'm thinking of following the prompts in one huge mega-entry. Is that crazy?
