I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC; #SOL16)
hosted by Two Writing Teachers.
Each day for the month of March I will be posting a "Slice of Life".
Please feel free to stop back and check out my other posts here.
Spelling bees are inherently a game of chance. Tonight, my oldest went to the County spelling bee, having already won both his classroom and schoolwide bees. He has been visiting the library to study from the enormous dictionary, asking people to quiz him with hard words, and working to prepare for this competition.
Round 1 of the bee consisted of pretty basic words like scary, odor, and ruin...along with words I didn't even know. Not just not know how to spell, but didn't even know as words. My son got out during round 1.
The luck was not in his favor, and while he is feeling devastated right now, I couldn't be more proud.
