    Academic Competitions In The Homeschooling World By Sara

    For us, it started when he was in kindergarten.  We had studied all our words and were now going to see how well we remember them at the Spelling Bee of our homeschool group.  I was looking at him, sitting there, in front of a crowd, just playing with his number that was around his neck, waiting his turn.  I was a nervous mother in the crowd of other nervous parents, while he couldn’t care less.  They were down to 5, now 3, now 2, I couldn’t take it anymore and voila!  He did it!  He won!
