Last week,both Mary Dalton & Jackson were chosen to go to the spelling bee for their classes!
They were so excited because they got out of class...and I took them to lunch...
it doesn't take much to make them happy! :)
why do they have to grow up so fast?!?!?!
Jackson placed 3rd ~ he stayed in several rounds and did great!
His friend Brooke was runner up and he was so happy for her! She was SO nervous and I honestly think he was more excited that she placed than he would have been for himself!
I kinda got stuck with heading up the spelling bee and there is NO WAY I could have done it without these students! These kids...they are my heart! I have the BEST kids...seriously. They are awesome!
6th grade round ~ annnndddd
MDD got out on her first word! She didn't care, but I gave her a hard time about it...she can handle being picked on...she thought it was funny, too! I am glad she loses graciously...she is really always so sweet! :)
And this was the highlight of the day ~
Jackson wanted his picture made with Annie Swan ~ she is in 9th grade and he is SMITTEN with her and she is so precious and is always so kind to him!
Super fun day at the academy!
