Vippie Choir Sings For Myron Rolle

Even on this crappy, snowy, freezing-your-gizzards-off (that one is for my dad) cold day, I found something very "cool" to shout about. As much as I love sports, I do get very upset with those who put it first without thinking of the future and the educational needs that are required to compete in the world after sports playing days are done. My kids were not allowed to play high school sports unless the grades were in place and the obligations to classroom fulfilled. So why is it college sports participants think because they are on the field, they should get special treatment in the classroom? Because no one tells them NO. Not ever ( Chris Webber is a prime example).

I found a story online today (and it was also buried in the back of the newspaper) that made me want to give a mom and dad a super high five. Check it out here. We have parents doing it right and a child who knew what matters for a change. Another round of accolades going out to teachers in this case. Someone got it right. Sing hallelujah sing!

By the time I get all these Christmas cards posted, it will be July. I certainly hope the snow is gone by then. Multiple layers were used on this along with a Sizzix die for the frame. Color by Copic. Idea by Laurie (who, by the way had knee replacement surgery before Christmas-and is already up and at 'em knocking peeps out of the way with her walker!). Check out her work at Jane's Craft Studio if you ever find yourself in the Waterford Mi area.
