Mama brag!!
Ben's first spelling bee was today! This was for all homeschoolers in the metro, grades K thru 8th (he's in 4th, but we registered him as 1st grade, because that's what he would be if he were in PS). He came in 7th place over-all, and he got a framed award for best sportsmanship! (Seriously... sportsmanship is NOT his strong suit, so I was more thrilled about that than the 7th place thing.) Honestly, he should've won. He got nervous on stage and reversed two letters (evaluate = evaulate). He knew that, and every single word after that. Next year, he'll be less stressed out about the whole thing. I'm very proud! :D I kinda thought he'd get nervous and screw up on the first round. :lol: He didn't get nervous until he realized how few kids were left.

Re: Mama brag!!

Can I ask...what do you mean by he is in 4th but he would be in 1st? Do you mean he is 6 and doing 4th grade work? I am not sure how the homeschool grading works yet as we just started.
