Nerd alert

My boys are not only currently watching the Scripps National Spelling Bee (yes, it's televised--on ESPN!), but they have eagerly anticipated watching it all morning and have even DVR'd it!

Nerds, indeed. My oldest son even texted his friend to come over and watch.

Makes a nerd-mama proud.

  2. I love the Spelling Bee, but I ALWAYS laugh when I see it on TV -- on ESPN!!! Like spelling words is a sport or something. It really does give us "nerds" a platform when people tell us we are not athletic!!! :)

  4. So, I guess you & your boys loved the movie Akela and the Bee as much as my girl & I did?

  5. My oldest boys (19 and almost 17) love to watch it, and are far from wearing the "nerd" label. They much prefer ESPN, but something about the competition draws them in.

    Happy weekend to you all.

  6. There really is something about that spelling bee. But the pressure. I can't stand the pressure for these kids!
