Very Proud Daddy
Posted by wolfhammer1 on Saturday, March 04, 2017 8:45 PM

My son just won the regional spelling bee and is on his way to the national spelling bee in Washington DC.  Tommy is the one on the left, the runner up is next to him.  If he continues to be successful, he will be on TV at the end of May.  I am very proud of him, and his hard work.

My son represented his school a couple of times. { as far as he went :) }.   You not only have to be smart, you have to have nerves of steel.  Congradulations to your son, and I wish him well as he continues.  It will be a great experience.                                                                                                                                        knox

That is absolutely awesome, John! And as Stik said, please do keep us posted.

Having a child involved in any wholesome extra-curricular activities is the best ever, an accomplishiment like this is icing on the cake.

Papryology???????? Never heard the word before. If I had tried to spell it on stage I'd have been booed off. If my major had not been girls and beer, maybe I could have been a bit more like your boy. 

You're a good Dad, being involved in his studies has no doubt been an incentive for him to do well. Ya done good, John, congratulations to you and your son. Thanks for the post.
