Our Little Speller

Ashton won her local school spelling bee, earning her way to the state spelling bee last week. It was a great experience. It was held in the Discovery Theatre at the Anchorage Performing Arts Center. There were approximately 150 kids competing. It took 2 hours to complete the first round! Ashton was the #5 speller (numbers were assigned randomly). She made it to the second round. She was a bit bummed, but excited at the thought of trying again next year. All that reading has given her quite a vocabulary!

Looking at herself in the paper before the Bee started. The Anchorage Daily News sponsored the event. They had pics of all the spellers in the paper that day.

Waiting her turn to go on stage to spell.

Ashton's turn on stage. Amazing, that part didn't bother her at all. She is so unlike her mother in that area!


  1. Bien hecho! I can't believe how old she is already. I loved talking with Ashton in church a couple weeks back. She is so sweet and confident!

  2. Glad to find your blog! Your girls are getting to be so grown up! And Remy is adorable of course. :) AB
