Spelling Bee Results

At the spelling bee I had a lot of fun. I was number 122. There was 212 people competing so I had to wait awhile for my first word. My first word was the word "brawl." I spelled it right. I was happy. After that I found out that the speaker goes to my church. That was pretty cool. My next word was "relevant." I spelled that right too. After round two we got cookies and punch. Then we went back to the spelling bee. My next word was "ductile." I thought I would get it wrong but I got it right. Then I got "alliteration." I spelled that right too. My next word I got wrong. It was the word "corps." It sounds like the word core so that is how I spelled it. I wasn't mad. I got 25th place out of 212. It was against fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders and I am only in fifth. My teacher said that was good. We left early so we didn't find out who won. I had a lot of fun and that is all that matters.

Today is the Day

Today is the day of the Spelling Bee. I will post all about it when I am done. I'm excited and also scared. I'm gonna miss school for about 5-6 hours. I don't think I'll win. I just think I won't be the first one out. We are gonna get a free lunch and T-shirt. We are gonna ride a bus to the place where the spelling bee is. Wish me luck!

Going Well With Raising Money

I have been working really hard with orders to help fundraise for my brother. All by myself making money I have made more then 150$. That is enough to pay for my passport. If you ordered anything don't think I'm not working on it. I have a lot of orders. My mom said I will love this trip a lot because you'll know that you help ed to go on it. I'm so excited to go. It is hard to just sit down and crochet all day but it is worth it.

Spelling Bee in 4 More Days

Next Wednesday is the spelling bee. I am really scared. I've been practicing with my teacher every morning at school. I'm happy that one of my friendsn at school got first place so we can do the spelling bee together. I just heard that the spelling bee ifm gonna have at least 210 kids. That's a lot. I don't think I'll win. I just think I won't be the first one out.

Making a lot of bibs, scarves, and washclothes is hard every day but I do it to help bring back Alexsey, my new brother.

I am going to get a new brother!

My Mom and Dad are adopting a little boy that they met in Ukraine when they adopted Dennis. He is so cute! His name is Alexsy. He is almost four years old and has something called spina bifida. I really want to go to Ukraine with my parents and with my little brother Dennis. I want to see where my brothers and sisters came from. But I know that it costs a lot of money for an airplane ticket so I am going to sell bibs to raise the money. Please spread the word about my bibs so that I could help my parents to pay for my ticket.
My Mom thinks that a good donation for a bib is $8. I have all kinds of colors including a pretty multi-colored yarn with brown, beige, and green.

Scarfs take me longer to make so I am selling them for $15. Please email if you would like to buy one.
You can visit my Mom's new blog about Alexsey at

My Birthday

Today is my birthday and my dad takes me out to breakfast wherever I want to go. It's a tradition but I don't know when it started. I'm gonna go to the donut shop so I can also buy donuts to take to my class at school. I need to hurry up and finish this post because I'm doing it in the morning before I go to school. Today the first person to say happy birthday to me was my younger brother Andrew. He came into my room to tell me happy birthday. I was so happy.
