Prepping For The Spelling Bee

I am so, so, SO happy right now. Jane and I both made it into the school Spelling Bee!!! Today we studied in Sunny's room for almost an hour on words we had trouble on. I still need to work on spelling "origami" and "deception". I keep spelling "origami" with a y at the end and "deception" with a s. Hopefully, I'll be able to remember them by the spelling bee, which is in early February, a few days before Valentine's Day. So, anyways, before I get even more off-topic: I was practicing with Jane when Nellie walked in, all cocky and smug. Apparently, the Frosted Meadows spelling bee is merging with the Madame Montez spelling bee and Nellie is participating...or so she says. I remember last year...ugh! Obviously, she beat me...and, well, won the school title. Jane and I were so mad because, like this year, we had studied for weeks and Nellie barely studied at all.
So, anyways, Nellie came in all braggy and boasty and started saying how this year was going to be just like the last. And then Jane and I said, "Whatever" and Nellie left with her nose stuck in the air. And that's why I have to beat her! I just have to. Even if Jane wins, I'll be happy.
I made a bunch of spelling flash cards that I'm going to practice with after this and then possibly read the dictionary (I know that sounds nerdy, but I really want to win!) before I go to bed tonight. But, before I finish this post, I just wanted to mention that Sunny has been working on fixing up Victoria, her oldest and first doll. Today she cleaned her skin with a Magic Eraser (something I highly recommend if your doll has dirty skin) and tomorrow- or maybe tonight- she's going to tackle her tangly brown hair. Okay, so be on the look out for a post of before and after pictures of Vicki soon! Happy Wednesday!



  1. That is so odd!!! We had a spelling bee at my school today!

  2. Good luck to you, Jane and Cali!!!

  3. Coolio! Good luck to both of you.

    It is kind of funny, I literally just had a spelling bee at my school today, I didn't win, but it was a lot of fun! Good luck again!

  4. Bonne chance, Jane et Cali! I really hope that one of you can beat Nellie!
    I'm looking forward to seeing more of Victoria. She seems to be the one girl at Frosted Meadows who doesn't get many photos. ;) And usually the First Doll is the most spoiled...
