National Spelling Bee
So my princess got the opportunity to be in the National Spelling Bee. She did not win, but she did make it through till the 3rd round. Either way I was very proud of her and impressed with how hard she studied and how dedicated she was to making it happen for her. We practiced her words every day for 2 straight months before the competition and she was ready. There were close to 500 words she had to know and she went from knowing a little under half to only missing about 20 on a regular basis. That in itself is impressive. There were some words I had to go and google to see what they meant and how they were pronounced.
