My Little Champion!

A very exciting night here--it was the all-school spelling bee and Patrick won! It was pretty cool because he is only in fifth grade and he beat out all those much older kids (eighth graders!)

He is following in his brother's footsteps--Andy won the all-school bee four years in a row!

Here he is before the bee started:

And after (with his posse)!

With his trophies!
Can you tell he's excited!?!

Please join Candid Carrie for lots of Phriday Foto fun!!

Congrats...my good friend's son won our city bee and is on his way to state. He has serious aspirations to go to D.C. and actually practices a couple of hours a day. These are big deals around here. You should be so proud!

Too bad he never smiles! A big congrats to Patrick. Being a underdog spelling bee champion myself, I'm sending him a cyber high-five.

(great now I have to triple check for spelling errors!)
