Spelling Bee

Today Connor was in the Barrie Literacy Council Spelling Bee. Last year when he was in grade 6 he was 5th out of about 95 kids. The word he couldn't spell last year was menial. This year he did not practice very much but there was also less competition - only 51 kids. He made it to the last 20 so he gets to go to the finals again. This year he correctly spelled poisonous, antonym and hospitable.

Congratulations. Hope he does well in the next level.

All I remember about spelling bees was a high level of anxiety.

The pressure doesn't seem to bother him at all. I am more anxious than him. He is not a type A personality. Did you know spelling ability is genetic? I loved spelling bees.

Hey Laura, I didn't know you were out there in bloggerville too.

How long has it been since we saw each other??
