My monkey #2 won 3rd place in the district spelling b contest a few weeks ago!
It got pretty intense and I was sweating for her. I bit my nails down to the bottom in the last couple rounds waiting to see if she spelled it correctly (they had them write the words on a piece of paper rather than out loud.
The three kids left were doing so well they had to bring out the harder words and it ended with cauliflower and heirloom. Pretty tough words!! She was a little frustrated she didn’t win but when she returned home handy bro-in-law gave her some reassuring words, he said, “It’s better you got 3rd place cause 3rd place means your smart, but still cool!
Maybe he should be wise bro instead or handy bro!
