half of a shiblum

Dear Little Leah, 

So, I was reading the scriptures the other night (yes, it was after midnight) and I came across one of my favorites. It makes me giggle every time. 

If you, being a Leah, are so darn cute, a shiblum must be ridiculously cute!

extra choice time

Dear Little Leah, 
Today I received an email from your morning para, Mrs. Cyphers. She told me the following story:
"G, I believe, was in Leah's class last year.  He earns extra choice time each day and the last two days he has chosen to invite Leah for a walk and offered to do her stair climbing practice with her. Today, he invited her to join him in taking turns bouncing on the therapy ball. He had her laughing for a good five minutes."
Mr. G then got his picture taken with you, but I haven't been able to talk to his mom to see if she's ok with it on the blog. But...Mr. G did take a picture of you and Mrs. Cypher, and I love it to pieces. We owe a lot to your team at school. Your teacher and therapists truly care for you and your paras are literally by your side every step of the way. This picture just screams love to me and it makes my heart happy. 

I love you Leah and I love that you are treating others in a way that makes them choose to want to spend time with you!
