Super Speller

Austin participated in the school spelling bee yesterday. He ended up losing to some 4th grade kids on a word that he knew.... he added an extra letter in the word and knew immediately he made a mistake. The spelling bee was in front of the entire 3rd & 4th grade - he asked before school that morning if anyone ever died of being so nervous. HA! I was nervous too! I couldn't even hold the video camera straight when he was on stage. He did awesome though. Next month he will perform in the district UIL competition. I think Austin spells better than some high school kids. We are so proud of our boy!!

I thought we were done with soccer this year... but got a call from one of the coaches asking if Austin could play in a weekend tournament in South Houston. It was the first time he has ever "played up" and he did great.... mainly played defense so he didn't score any goals.

One of the games was in the evening. He felt like a professional playing under the stadium lights.

The whole family joined

It was a long weekend... we were all tuckered out!
