Sunshine Award Assignment Complete!

Sunshine award? I can hear my principal friends laughing out loud at the idea that I would receive any type of award with the word "sunshine" attached. But it's not really an "award" but a challenge. My new found good friend Amber Teaman over at Technically Teamann tagged me in this challenge. She is so smart so I better follow her lead:)
