Spelling Bee

Maiah is in the Homeschool spelling bee this year.  When we were in S. Indiana, she was the runner-up for her school in 4th grade and in 5th grade.  This one is for 5th-8th graders.  She had her first practice on Tues. at the Plainfield Twp. library.  There are 20 kids registered.  After the practice was done, she said to me, "I can win this."  Too funny.  Nothing like a little confidence!  I know she'd love to win, after almost winning the last 2 years.  She gets her spelling prowess from her mom.  When I was in 5th grade, I won my school spelling bee (this was in the days when 6th grade was still in elementary school, so I was all that b/c I beat all the 6th graders! :))  I still have my prize-a red hardcover dictionary with my written on it in gold.  Maybe we should watch those 2 spelling bee movies that come out a couple years ago, one with Richard Gere.  If they are appropriate for an 11 year old....Let me know if you've seen them and what you think!  And pray for Maiah to win, or at least to place well.  :)
