If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

My Spelling Bee Boy

If you have ever had a kid with physical special needs, you know how it feels when they find something they can compete and succeed in.  Jack came home a month or so ago and told me that he wanted to try out for the spelling bee.  So we studied the words and he took the test.  I have to say that was a pretty nervous day because he really doesn't have anything he competes in so I wanted him to succeed and not get burned.  Well he made it and we traded in the list of 50 words for the new list of 400.

On Friday, he competed against other 3rd graders and 4th and 5th graders.  I think I was more nervous than he was.

He made it through the 3rd round which was frankly further than I would have made it. :)

I am proud of him for stepping out there, studying hard, and doing his best.  Way to go Jack!

That is super, Jack! Jack is so brave!
I've never seen any of my children compete like that. What a neat experience for the both of you. What a proud moment!
