Usually Wednesdays around here are Wordless Wednesday, but not today. And I almost missed all of the excitement.
Today was our school district Spelling Bee and Big J was one of the spellers. I had an invitation but had misplaced it. I thought it started at 10:30 and Big J told me he thought it started at 10, but really who listens to a 12 yr old. So this morning I was getting ready to go and thought I would call and find out exactly what time the Spelling Bee started…and it started at 9:30. Oh no. So I grabbed the littles and headed over to the performing arts center…
And walked in right as Big J was spelling and there were only 5 kids left. At first I felt a little bad, but then realized that I missed all the unimportant stuff and got there just in time for the Big Show.
Oh and got there without a camera…so all the following pictures were taken with my phone. Which is a great phone, but a crappy camera.
So quickly they were down to 4.
And then three.
And then it was Big j and Luke.
And these two guys went round after round after round…
and then Supremacy and then a misspelled word and finally L I T E R A C Y!!!
And he won! Woo Hoo!!
Here is the group of all the kids that competed. I would say they all did a good job, but since I missed most of it I am just assuming they did.
I am so proud of my little speller.
Now on to regionals on the 17th of February.
