So Proud!

The kids brought home report cards today from the 2nd nine weeks of school. We already knew what their grades were, but it's always good to see it in ink! Leah got all A's & Ty got all E's. Their teachers gave them both high praise for their attitudes & efforts. Ty also received a reward for being the most improved in spelling!
Ty is such a good friend also. He stood up for one of his classmates, who is also a friend/neighbor's daughter. She has a slight stutter & another classmate made fun of her for it. Ty told the boy not to make fun of her, that it was hurting her feelings & not nice. He also said "she can't help it; that's just the way she was built". Man, I love that kid!! Her mom told me that Anna said that night, as she was telling the story, that she was so happy that Ty is her friend! Awh! Heart warming, I tell ya'!

Here is the latest layout I have made using EP's Head Over Heels. 
 I started with this sketch  from Sketch N Scrap. The alphas are AC Thickers are the 3D hearts are from my stash.  

We are ALL home today due to snow! The kids didn't have school & even Drew didn't have to go to work because of it. It's kinda nice!
Hope you are staying warm!
