the spelling bee

(photo via here)

last night we watched the national spelling bee. I'm totally dumbfounded the whole time because I'm a horrible speller...well not horrible, but extremely lazy. I will call to grant in the other room for help spelling "bread" if I'm too lazy to think about it.

these kids were so entertaining. especially this little guy, kyle mou from peoria, illinois. he didn't win but they had a little interview with him and he said something to the effect, "I don't really like spelling that much, but I like competing on this stage, because it's hard". he also said his favorite word was "laid back"...but then realized it was two words. adorable.
