spelling season is over

My dear Alex is thankful that spelling season is over. That’s what he told his dad. Back in January, he participated in the Fayette county homeschool spelling bee. He won for his age group. There were only 2 third graders so I tried to not make a big deal out of it. We attended the county wide bee to cheer on the homeschoolers who made it to that level (next year Alex will be old enough to move one) and we also met some other friends there who were competing for TCA. I think Alex was more interested in the snack table than watching the spellers.

We continued to study the words because we had another spelling bee with our co-op in February, but it was snowed out or was that rained out–I forget which. It was rescheduled for last week. Somehow, I got recruited to pronounce the words. The last two first graders standing exhausted their entire word list and we had to move onto the 2nd grade word list. One of the judges whispered to me to move on to the 3rd grade list so there would be some words left for the 2nd graders when it was their turn. But it didn’t get that far.

Alex was the last 3rd grader standing.  Woohoo
