Spelling Bee Results

Today was Julian's spelling Bee. He was so pumped and ready to go. We had been studying every day since he made it into the contest. They lined all the kids up on the stage, stated the rules, and got started. The first word given out was eerie. The same word Jacquelyn missed recently on a literary bee. Maybe she doesn't want that all over the internet--sorry Jackie--anyway, the kid got it wrong. Julian's word was rhythm which he knew. He went up and adjusted the microphone and said the word, spelled the word and then walked away. He failed to repeat the word after he spelled it, so he was out. He was so crushed. It is really too bad because there were only a couple of words that he would have possibly had trouble with. Oh well, there is always next year! He still got Chinese food and a candy bar. Who could ask for more?!
