I felt so happy for him because I was a spelling bee champ when I was young. We trained and trained with the list given to us to prepare him.
Finally, the day came. Unfortunately, it didn't start out so well.
The class adviser gave us the wrong time and we had to rush B to get to school "on time" only to find out that it was starting an hour later. B was not happy and he was down because he did not have breakfast.
As for me, I was seething. It was a good thing that B was still up for the contest and he was still pretty okay.
Here's B before the contest.
Here's B during the contest. Mind you, the class adviser did not train him for the other words and yet he placed 4th overall. My baby is such a geek. I love it!
The proud, albeit upset, Mommy.
Win or lose, I will always be proud of you my son. MWAH!
