This week we watched our friend's, Jim and Emily's dog. Bentley was a playmate for Chula for the week, and although very different, got along great. Emily had the opportunity to donate stem cells for a cancer patient who needed a transplant. We were happy to help, and were sad (especially Chula) to see him go home.
I was in a staff spelling bee for my district of 88 schools. About 55 schools were represented with teams of 5. It was a spelling bee to raise scholarships for seniors, and it was no joke. We bought into the competition, designed t-shirts, and could buy back into the first 5 rounds for $5 per round. The words were outrageously difficult (i.e. dossier, anacaphagia, ichnolite, etc...) A team of 5 of us competed against other staff and tied for third place. I should mention that about 50 other schools went out at the same time and two schools remained to compete for 1stt & 2nd places. We had a fun time, although short-lived at that.
More soon...love, us
