I received a trophy years ago for being the best 11-12 year old girl on the Turlock Swim Team.


Oh I love these ideas! We love that movie too. We need to watch it again actually! I think we shall take our chalk outside next week for spelling - assuming it doesn't snow!


Great idea. My friend also post the spelling word on paper on the outside of a glass shower door and her boys practice while in the shower.


I love it! We have a glass table on our patio and we've been known to use dry erase markers and study spelling that way.

I have trophies. I'm not athletic in any shape, form or fashion, but I have Bible Quiz trophies. I competed back in middle and high school.

We would be assigned a passage (in the King James Version mind you!) about a week before the competition. We had to read it, study it and then answer random questions about it at the competition.

I loved it! But I remember there was one guy who beat me out of First Place every single time. I can still see his face and hope that he is a professor at some seminary now! :)



I LOVE spelling too and so do my girls!! Great idea using the chalk. I'm going to do that right after snack time. :o)
