Annie Kate and I stayed up last night as long as we could to watch the National Spelling bee. It was on ABC primetime. We had trouble turning it off at 10:00 pm because we could not stop watching. 13 year old Evan M. O'Dorney won with the word "serrefine" - a clamp used during surgery. This kid is amazing!
This morning when going over Annie Kate's spelling words she would ask me, how many syllables, may I have a definition... it was kind of funny.
*** interesting blogging didn't reconize the serrefine saying it was mispelled. Even blogger dictionary could not win the National Spelling Bee.
here is a spelling word idea. I make spelling word flash cards on old envelopes, tape the open end shut. attached together with cool funky beading wire. In between the spelling words write cute notes to your kids. I love you! & You rock!
