Our annual homeschool spelling bee was held last week on Monday! Five of my siblings competed, and they all did awesome. 🙂 But keep scrolling to find out which sister WON!!!
Cara, Kate, and Wade were all in the pre-bee.
When it was Wade’s turn during the practice round, he walked up to the microphone, and upon realizing it was too high for his five-year-old stature, grabbed the mike, stood up as tall as he could, and puffed out his chest. He told the judges his name (first, middle AND last, mind you) and age, and proceeded to spell his given word, “wag.”
“W-A-G…….” his voice trailed off as he wrinkled up his forehead, trying to decide whether or not the word continued. After a long pause (during which we all may or may not have been trying to hide our laughs), the judge finally told him it was correct and let him sit down. He was SO much fun – it was an awesome ice breaker, too!
Here’s the whole group of pre-bee spellers….
….And here are the pre-bee winners!!! Alexis won first, and Silas was the runner up.
Can’t have a competition without judges!
This is Abby, folks. One of Joy’s best friends and a sweet girl who never fails to give a smile.
It took quite a while to narrow down this group, but out of all eight of them, Joy won! She gets to continue on to the next level, which I think is county. Who knows – maybe she’ll get to national! She’s studying already.
Haha…I asked the twins to show me their certificates, and this was my favorite shot. Love their expressions! 🙂
We stopped at McDonald’s afterwards to use up some coupons, and were surprised to see that two of the families from the homeschool group happened to be there also! Abby’s family had to leave right away, but the Hopkins stayed and chatted with us for quite a while. They were planning on going through the drive-thru, but we were able to convince them to come in and eat. 🙂
We had an interesting proportion of boys to girls. But with our family, I guess that’s the usual. 🙂
Thanks for reading, y’all! Have an awesome week and keep shining for Jesus!
