Son is in the school spelling bee tomorrow. It's the thing he shines at amongst so many challenges. For instance, he JUST a couple of months ago learned how to ride his two wheel bike. He came in second last year and got to go to the school district spelling bee. He made it to the fourth round! I was so proud because it includes grades 4 thru 8 and he was one of the few fourth grade students. It gives him the greatly needed "status" in school. He's very small for his age (takes after my mother in law) and struggles with coordination and sports. Anyway, he's studied a little bit, but not much. It's hard to get him to, YKWIM? He gets bored with it and doesn't like to feel pressure. So, I do try to stress the "just do your best" aspect. So, pull for my little guy.. Please.
