Daiquiri, Please

I ended up going to the spelling bee. Seth took care of the Pinewood Derby. 
 
Mia came in about 12th place out of 26 contestants.  She misspelled apparel.
 
Jared came in 4th out of 19 contestants.  He misspelled daiquiri. 
 

This is the first time either one of them have been in a spelling bee that used this format, so it was a good experience.  This was also the last year Jared is eligible. (I can't believe he will be in eighth grade next year!)

Mia doesn't know if she is going to try out for it next year or not.  She wasn't very happy with her performance...maybe practicing wasn't such a bad idea after all.

Quite possibly Jared's favorite experience in the whole thing was spelling sanguine.  He learned how to spell that word in third grade at Fox Hills.

Good job to both of them. I was going to ask how they went the next time I saw you and then I didn't expect to see you guys Sunday and it had slipped my brain. Go glad you got to go to. I hate missing things like that.

Congratulations, Jared and Mia! Great job! Now you'll never forget those words you missed for the rest of your lives!
