(Paragon was the winning word at this year's Spelling Bee.) Ten students in grades 5-8 com- peted to be district Spelling Bee champion. After 10 elimination rounds, it came down to two sis- ters, Lindsey and Hilary Davis. In a spell-off of sorts, Lindsey emerged the champion with her sister Hil- ary as alternate. The Regional Spellin~g Bee is Thursday morning, Fel~. 11, at Resource Training and Solutions in St. Cloud. Would you know these words?

It has been filled with missions and other various activities. I haven't really done much else this week because of the long missions. We did have one IDF (in direct fire) this week. I believe it missed base again. I have been reading and watching movies lately. I start my online class next week; I am excited to start up school again. ! am going for my CCAF which is equivalent to an associate's degree. I am getting it in criminal justice even though I eventually want to become an elementary school teacher. The weather has been cool and windy. No snow on the ground here but the mountains have a bunch of snow. The sunrises here are beautiful. I haven't seen a sunset yet but I am sure they are just as beautiful as the sunrises. I hope everyone enjoys their week. Allie will write us each week, her time and missions allowing.
