I have to brag. My 8 year old, third grade daughter, Isabella, won the school speling bee. She beat all of the third fourth and fifth graders at her school.
Tonight she will be competing against the other shools and junior highs in the district. She will even be competing against eigth graders.
How long has she been studying? She hasn't. We did not know about the speling bee until she came home and said she won.
If she should win tonight, which I think is a tall order against eighth graders, she will not move on because she is too young.
I'll post an update tomorrow to let you know what happens.
Isabella competed against 50 middle school kids and two fifth graders that won at the other elementary schools.
She made it to the final round and tied for fourth place.
Impressive, most impressive.
