Makes My Monday: The Final Four

He-Twin and She-Twin have a history of spelling bee success.

In first grade, they were both their classroom winners.

In second grade, She-Twin was her classroom winner. (He-Twin was not there on the day of his in-class bee.)

In third grade, they went head-to-head in the school-wide bee---each representing their respective classes.

This year, in fourth grade, He-Twin was his class winner; She-Twin, her class' alternate.

Round after round, He-Twin held his ground. (Please note the sea of emptied seats, and the patient, handsome speller awaiting his next turn in the white tee with denim over-shirt.)

While his disappointment was palpable at his fourth-place finish, He-Twin's performance, his preparation, his calm under pressure, and his sportsmanship completely

M-A-K-E   M-Y   M-O-N-D-A-Y.
(*As does the fact that the winner of the Big Bee was representing She-Twin's class. She-Twin was her alternate.)

oh that is so cool, spelling and I are not the best of friends, grammar either...somewhere between the creative process and the paper all the rules leave my brain and float in the clouds...I envy those that have the ability to kept them rooted firmly on the ground.
