My son made is in a Spelling Bee tonight at school. Only he and 3 other 6th graders were chosen out of all the 6th graders in his school. Unfortunately he will be competing against them, and 7th and 8th graders.
My daughter made it last year, but just missed this year. She made it all way semi finals. Beating out all of the older kids except the two that competed for the finals.
I have to say I am very proud of my kids. Cross your fingers for my son tonight.
