And the Winner is..

My son!! We had the school spelling bee last night and out of 21 kids mine won - yay. Once he realized he was winner he kinda got a permagrin! He was way excited. I am so glad his mental telepathy was not working. I misspelled 3 of the words he got!

Today I worked with the 5th grade class again, sewing quilt tops. And I was a star - because I was the mom of the kids who won. Hows that for celebrity! It made me happy. We got 4 complete tops assembled, 1/2 of another. So I will be going back again next friday and sewing some more with them. They are really doing a great job and learning well. The computer teacher loaned us her camera, so I will have to see if she can email me some pics.

Gratitudes for today:
1. It is sunny - the snow and ice is getting slushy.
2. The kids are excited to sew.
3. We made great progress.
4. My son did well in the Spelling Bee
5. Soft couches and long phone cords - I am bonding with the couch at the moment!!

How very exciting! Congratulations to your son!

I have a lot of respect for those who can spell well. I can tell by looking at a word that it is spelled incorrectly but if it wasn't for spell check, well..... let's just say I would struggle more with my writing.

Congratulations! Spelling is so important...I was always good at it, until I started typing!

Permagrin...I love that!

Congratulations to your son! Spelling was my favorite subject in grade many, many years ago. And like Carolyn, I can spell better than I can type. Somehow my brain works faster than my fingers.
