Drazen's Awards Ceremony

On May 14th, Drazen received an award at school for winning the 7th grade Spelling Bee in January. He actually won the Spelling Bee at school, and moved on to the regional, he was one of the winners of that, and then moved on to the district spelling bee, which was televised on PBS channel on Superbowl Sunday. There, he was one of 7 remaining contestants, but unfortunately he missed a word, it was indefatigeable. Of course, I never heard of that word, and believe it or not neither did Jeff. Drazen missed it by one letter. It was a bummer, but at the same time really cool that he got as far as he did. What an experience for him.

I know this is a little late, but that is AWESOME about Drazen getting so far in the spelling bee! Daxton has been in them, and I can't believe the words they ask them to spell, and that they actually CAN!!! Tell him "good job"!!!
