That's my girl, on the left. She took 3rd place in the second grade spelling bee. The word that did her in–neighborhood. It's a third grade word, the kids were doing so well they had to ditch the second grade list and move on. She had them going for a while, but when she spelled her word, she got the neigh and went on with the ood, forgetting about the bor. The poor kids were up there for an hour and a half, battling it out. I'm so proud of how she handled herself, in front of all the first and second graders and a bunch of parents and teachers. Top three out of 20. So, so proud.
