CJ made it through the second round. He did great on his first word(FRUIT), but got nervous in the second round. He had all of the correct letters in his word (SQUEEZE) he just mixed the letters up a little bit (SQUEZEE). Oopse! Oh well, we were really proud of him for being one of only 20 kids in the school who was able to participate. There were some really difficult words and all of the kids did great.
At the end of the spelling bee all of the kids posed for a group picture with their certificates. One funny note... CJ's last name is spelled wrong on his certificate! Our last name is a bit challenging, but when it is for a spelling bee, you would think someone would have double checked ALL of the SPELLING! ;-)
