Brian is one of his school’s homeroom winners of the spelling bee for his grade. He will be competing against other fourth and fifth grade winners in his school’s spelling bee this Monday. If he wins then he will advance to the county-wide bee. Then from there, the Scripps National Spelling Bee. We have been studying MerriamWebster’s Spell It! for a couple of days in the evening. The teacher gave us a booklet of tips and tricks.
I got the notice this Tuesday regarding his participation in the bee. They sure didn’t give us enough time to study. Before Christmas vacation, Brian told me that he had won the spelling bee in his class had but I had no idea that it was for this competition. If I had known, we would have studied during Christmas vacation. That is not to say that Brian would have been a very happy camper about that.
I won’t be here to see him compete in the school spelling bee. I will be in Miami. Tom is taking the morning off from work to be there for him. I am worried that we didn’t have enough time to prepare. As a matter of a fact, I know we didn’t study enough.
Win or loose, I am still very proud of him.
My daughter’s new website-Going Out On A Whim . This is the maiden voyage for her.
Carrie, I wish you luck and success in all her endeavors.
