WARNING: Proud Mommy Alert


Little E was in a spelling bee today at school. She made it to the third round, even with some pretty difficult words: idiom, hickory & sombrero. She was 4th out of 10 students in grades 4 through 9. We moved her to a Christian school this year from the public system for a number of reasons. So we were a little worried how the transition with the new friends and different teaching would affect her school work, but apparently she's thriving. J and I are just so proud of her. She stayed home most of yesterday because of the same nasty cold I had, but she literally bounded out of bed this morning and ran into my room shouting "I feel great". What a little trooper. She didn't want to miss out on the spelling bee or the Tigers hockey game tonight with dad & friends. Did I say that I'm proud of my little miss?

Update: My getaway to Calgary got cancelled so I made myself better by ordering a few books at Amazon.ca, including this one. I also got stuck taking three little girls to the hockey game tonight. I don't even like hockey, so I think I'm even more justified with my purchases!
