Nate had the honor of being in the spelling bee this year. He was the top speller in his class and competed against all the other 4th, 5th and 6th graders. He did really well and had some pretty difficult words. He made it through quite a few rounds but on the next to last he and one other guy got out (he lost on Mystique... he started with "mis" and as soon as it was out of his mouth, he realized but it was too late) leaving just last years' winner and one other girl who ended up winning. All in all I was very proud of him!
He's the handsome guy in the center back row!
