Alicia made it all the way top 2!!!
She lost to a 5th grader, but I'm so HUGELY proud of her. For only being in 3rd grade, she did amazingly well. We're unsure if she's going to county; the principal needed to doublecheck the rules this year to see if it's the top 1 or top 2 from the school bee that go. Still, either way, she's a winner. :)
It was funny because they announced the origin of the round's words before the round started. Every time they said one Alicia was comfortable with, she pumped her fist. Then in the final round when they said the words were of Greek origin, her face just fell. Those were the ones she'd been having trouble with all along, but still, it was so funny to watch her. Everybody in the audience knew exactly how she felt about the words, lol.
