My 7th grader this spring won her school spelling bee, then the district bee, and today we took her to the regional bee for northern Idaho, and she WON! So she's getting an expense-paid trip for all of us for a week in Washington, DC in May, to compete in the National Spelling Bee. We're SO PROUD!
I adore DC. I was born there, and have been back there many times, so I can't wait to show my kids my favorite city! ! yippee!
How awesome! Congrats, an good luck to DD on the next bee.
Wow, I understand why your so proud! I would be too. Congrats!
Congrats to your DD.
Have fun visiting your old stomping grounds.
Congrats to your daughter!! What a nice gift for her and the family(her biggest fans). Good Luck in DC!
That is super!! Congrats to her and to you for having such a smart kiddo!
Don't they air the National Spelling Bee on TV?
That's great! Congratulations to her! Competing at a national level is no small task!
We just watched Akeelah and the Bee the other week in Latin (which is the closest I've come to those upper-level spelling be words)... and woah, I applaud your DD for her spelling.
Good luck in DC!
Thanks you guys. She is very, very smart. She did great today. We're very excited about the trip.
Have a great weekend, all.
That's so great! Congratulations to your daughter, and good luck for the Nationals.
That is very cool! Good luck in the Nationals!
That's so cool! Congrats and good luck to your DD. If it's going to be televised you'll have to let us know!!!
This from someone who can't spell to save her life.
How exciting for all of you! Enjoy your trip and I hope she brings the trophy home.
