C-H-A-M-P-I-O-N

For those of you who missed it, the Scripps National Spelling Bee was on ABC last night. So fun to watch. Way more interesting than any reality show. These kids are so smart. Well, a homeschooler from California is the 2007 champion, winning with the word serrefine. Second place went to Nate Gartke, a boy from Edmonton! If you want to watch the showdown between these boys, click here. I could seriously see Joshua being a good candidate for this competition. The kid loves to spell and can already spell about 20-25 words. And he asks us everyday, "How do you spell..." He loves doing it! I guess we'll see!

You should check out the documentary Spellbound about the national spelling bee. It is so cute and amazingly intense. Such an interesting film. :)
