One of my Terrific Kids!

My husband and I are blessed to have three terrific children. At 7:30 a.m. today, Gil and I were guests at a very special breakfast for one of them.

We accompanied Jacob, our youngest, to school where he was honored as a Terrific Kid for the month of September! He was selected by his teacher for exhibiting this month's character trait: wisdom. We were surrounded by families of other Terrific Kids, since each teacher chooses a student from his or her class to be honored each month.

When it was Jacob's turn, the letter his 1st grade teacher had written to nominate him was read. Then he received a certificate from the Kiwanis Club.

Our principal pinned a "Terrific Kid" badge on Jakie as she congratulated him.

Here is our little star. We had to talk him into wearing his badge for the rest of the day. He doesn't really like to show off!

I am so proud of my sweet little guy!!!

So I came home and made scrapbook pages!

I uploaded a couple to Facebook (StoryBook Creator 3.0 lets me send my digital layouts directly to Facebook!), and within minutes a sweet friend had noticed a typo for me. So I fixed that, and played around a little more.

I have two pages that are exactly the same, except for the background. Making the change took just second and a few clicks. I like the second version better.

This third layout is completely different. Here, I used my photo of the certificate and bumper sticker as the page background. I think I like this one the best.

My daughter, who is in 5th grade, came home from school and saw Jacob's pages on the computer. She was also a Terrific Kid at school last year. She asked why she didn't have a page like Jacob's! Ouch.

This is one of the reasons I wanted to blog... to make myself accountable to get my own scrapbooking done! I do so much scrapbooking for and with others, but not so much for my own family, unfortunately.

I am sure you know some terrific kids, too!
