F earned the title of 1 of 12 finalists in his school to compete for a spot at the regional round of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. We didn't study until the night before, so he wasn't as versed as he could have been, but he still did well. We were so proud of him. Regrettably though, he went out on the 3rd of 5 rounds.
But $100 says he will never forget how to spell the word, "transparency."
And for some reason, I cannot get a decent shot of him on stage, at any school event. I have tried every setting on my camera...I blame school lighting!
