Brayden the Bee

Brayden surprised me one day and asked me if I could come to his Spelling Bee on January 13. First of all, I didn't even know the school was having a spelling bee let alone my own son qualified to represent the 5th grade for the contest. They had preliminary rounds in their classrooms and then had a school wide spelling bee contest in which Brayden competed. The winner of his school would then go on to represent the whole school at the Collin County spelling bee. I was so proud when I walked into the school gym and saw Brayden sitting on the stage. I could tell he was really nervous. That morning he was wishing he wasn't such a good speller because he was so nervous. His first word was "surround". He only said one "r" and was eliminated in the first round but I was so proud of him and could tell he was relieved to have it over. He blamed it on his nerves and I can't blame him...that is scary to stand in front off all your peers. Way to go Brayden!!!
