Today, Shayna participated in a spelling bee with the OHVA kids. I was so proud of her. She and Kayla are naturally shy (like I am). It was a really big deal for her to get up and speak in front of so many people.
Shayna went out in the second round. She misspelled shoe, a word she could probably spell backwards. Nerves got the best of her. First, she said S-H-O. Once she realized she forgot the E, she tried to go back and correct it and spelled it S-H-E. But, we could tell she was just flustered. In fact, when she came back down off stage, she said "Wow, I really got flustered." I could tell she was a little upset. But, she handled it really well. She did great since age-wise she's only in first grade and there were only 2 first graders in the 18 kids entered in the bee (they were 1-3 graders.
