I am a total "word freak".I seriously LOVE anything that has to do with words...hence the blog. I LOVE spelling, reading, writing, journaling, editing...pretty much the whole English language (and I've only limited myself to English because that's the only language I know, although I did minor in Latin in college.)
Spell Girl and I share that love of words (which is delightful for me, because in every other way, she's just like her dad. It's nice to be able to take credit for something.) She won the Spelling Bee two years in a row at her school. She's going to this year's UIL Spelling competition next weekend.

So the game we got Spell Girl for Christmas happens to be a perfect fit for her AND FOR ME!
We finally had a chance to play tonight with the whole family. We lost Daughter #1 after a brief conflict about the rules. My husband stayed through three or four rounds and then got distracted by a bowl game. The two younger kids played through all the rounds, but really Spell Girl was my ultimate competition.

There really is nothing more exciting than watching your kids discover their talents and bask in their successes. As they get older, I am thoroughly enjoying seeing their greatness emerge.
