Ashlyn continues to amaze us with her spelling skills. She finished in the top 15 at the district 4th-6th grade bee that was held on Feb. 21st. There were 90 contestants--all the top spellers from the elementary school bees. She never missed a word through the 6 rounds of competition. The top 15 now go on to the Davis County bee, where 45 total spellers, including 7th and 8th graders, will compete down to the final one winner. The winner of that bee (on March 20th) will get to go to Washington D.C. to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Ashlyn has practiced hard, and we are so proud of her. She also has A LOT of natural talent when it comes to spelling, which I'm sure is related to the amount of reading that she does. We figure that an older student will probably be the winner, but it will be good experience for her, and she definitely has potential to totally win it in the future. I am looking forward to see how she does on March 20th. She keeps impressing us all!!
