This is my simple photo journal. I like to take pictures and once a month or more, I load them onto this blog so that we can remember some of our family highlights.



H-y-s-t-e-r-i-c-a-l   is what won Summer the spelling bee today. This gal can keep her cool under pressure. She was more like number 157 in the picture above.  Of course I wanted Summer to win, but I hated watching those cute competitors make a spelling mistake and have the bell ring. Their crestfallen faces got to me.   The words are so abitrary--some easier than others.
Summer goes on to the district spelling bee in January.  Cole was in the district spelling bee a couple years ago, but  a-u-g-m-e-n-t   got him the dreaded bell ring.  He'll never forget how to spell augment again.
