I remember being in a spelling bee- several times. I was always a good speller.
Little Man, not so much as I have written of before.
He is getting better this year with an EXCELLENT teacher and some maturity and initiative.
He wants to be in his class spelling bee and as much as I discouraged him like the good parent I am, he insists.
We studied some words tonight.
I said that I remembered how that word troubled me as a child.
He said, "OH MOM, that one is so easy."
Bis-GET. Just like it sounds.
