So today was the school-wide spelling bee at Alicia's middle school. Six weeks ago, the top sixth, seventh, and eighth grader spellers in each grade were selected to compete. Alicia and her best friend M both made the sixth grade cut.
Today, against forty other students, Alicia came in 3rd, and M came in second. They lost to an eighth grader. Not too shabby for a pair of smarty-pants sixth graders. :)
Needless to say, L (M's mom) and I are super-proud.
