Spelling Bee Update

Well, Nate has wowed us all again. He is advancing to yet another level of the spelling bee. I can't even pronounce most of the words, let alone spell them. So far he has been competing with 4-5-6 graders but now it will be 4-5-6-7-8 graders. The new word list contains 1,150 words but they haven't guaranteed that they will only go off of that list. It could be any of 45,000 words if competition is tough. He only has til March 10th to practice. Good luck Nate- nationals is only 1 step away!

Things have been pretty busy at our house lately. Definitely the biggest thing is that Nate is advancing to the next round of the spelling bee. He's made it through the class and the school and is on to the next level. Congratulations Nate! The next round is on February 17th.
