Arte y Pico

I am very honored to be given the Arte y Pico Award from Literate Lives! I have seen it all over the web and I feel special to be a part of it. Many blogs have already been honored, but I am sure they won't mind seeing their name again. I am copying this straight from Karen and Bill's blog, so I hope I am not missing anything, but here are the rules:
Essentially this award is like a Meme. There are rules for paying it forward after your blog gets recognized.
They are as follows:
1) Select 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award, based on creativity, design, interesting material, and contribution to the blogger community. The blogs can be in any language.
2) Post a link to each blog so that others can visit.
3) Each award-winner has to show the award and link to the blogger that awarded it.
4) The award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show a link to

1) A Year of Reading. My mentor blog. Mary Lee and Franki have been going all out this summer. I see them post once and sometimes twice a day. I have learned SO much from them both. Everyone needs a mentor like these two ladies!

2) Help Readers Love Reading. A new blog I started reading this summer. I really like that the author is a male who teaches the same age as me. It gives me an entirely different perspective on books for my students. Here's to you, Brian!

3) A Teacher's Life. Jen is great! We have never met in person, but I know if did, we would be best of friends. She always has such kind words and thoughtful posts.

4) Jen Robinson's Book Page. Besides having THE BEST posts in the universe, Jen always keeps up with other's blogs. She regularly comments on my rambling boring blogs and has something nice to say. And she does my Memes even though she hates them.

5) Greetings From Nowhere. Barbara O'Connor is my best author friend. No matter that she is my ONLY author friend. But seriously... her posts are funny and informational. She has tons of great posts about writing like her Writing Tips Tuesday. She also has great information for author visits that I also enjoy hearing about.

Thanks so much, Megan!! I'm taking a blog vacation to recharge my batteries this week, but I must say that your kind words make me eager to get back to blogging. And for the record, your posts aren't boring at all. I love Read, Read, Read! Thanks so much!
