Both kids came home with good academic news today! Megan advanced to the school spelling bee. Surprised me because I didn't know they were going to do a homeroom spelling bee. She was really funny, she said she couldn't believe how many bad spellers their were in her class. She gave " conceit" as an easy word that people missed. LOL. She's always been a good speller. Evan came home with an 18/20 on an English/History partner project that he ended up doing solo because his partner dropped the class the day before the project was due. She knew she was going to drop and contributed NOTHING to the project. One of the two teachers even told him he did a very good job on it and that was the kind of work he knew Evan could do. Very much an " Atta-boy, I believe in you". This was just what he needed. I've been giving him a hard time about his grades and he's got finals coming up in a few weeks. Just put a smile on my face that I wanted to share!

Congrats to Megan, that is awesome (coming from a bad speller here, LOL!) and good job for Evan putting the work in for his partner's deficiencies!
