Can You Spell............?

You may or may not know that Neeley inherited my spelling genes. :) Our lil miss won her school spelling bee in January.

She was so nervous!

But her fan section made her feel more at ease........

She really had to think about some of the words.......

But, in the end, she won.

The school wide bee was made up of the 2 top winners of each grade, 4th through 8th. Wow!

Part of her winnings included a 1-year subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica Online and a 1-year language course through an online program. Neeley chose French!

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.......

Can you tell Neeley is the youngest one in this picture? No?? Well...why not?? LOL

She is sooooooooooo proud of that trophy to add to her collection. And now we are preparing for the European Spelling Bee in March. It will be held in Ramstein, here in Germany. I read in her materials that 32 or 33 kids will be participating. Yikes! We better get on the ball. We've been told she has a really good chance at this one, too, so please be praying for us to get through these words and to keep a clear mind that day to not panic. LOL

If she wins there in Ramstein, we then hop a plane to compete for the national title in Washington, D.C. Who's meeting us there?? :)

Have I told you we also have a Taylor Swift concert to also attend this day?? Yeah....we're gonna make it happen somehow. Any ideas??
